What might have been and what  has been
Point to one end, which is always present.”

Making It To The Next Phase Of Life   3 comments

Two Tail Swallowtail IMG_0772 blogA student holds a Two-tailed Swallowtail just after coming out of its cocoon. 

Just outside the Sabino Canyon Visitors Center, A Junior Naturalist (7th grader) showed a Two-tailed Swallowtail with wings still curved, just having emerged from her cocoon. This image represents the last stage of a caterpillar morphing into a butterfly, which began with a very hungry caterpillar hatching from an egg. The caterpillar will spend this phase of its life stuffing itself with leaves, growing plumper and longer through a series of molts in which it sheds its skin. Then, one day the caterpillar stops eating, suspends itself upside down from a twig or leaf and spins itself a silky cocoon where the caterpillar digests itself, eventually emerging as a butterfly. Cool!!

Happiness is a butterfly,
which when pursued,
is always just beyond your grasp,
but which,
if you will sit down quietly,
may alight upon you.

— Nathaniel Hawthorne

Color possesses me.
I don’t have to pursue it.
It will possess me always, I know it.
That is the meaning of this happy hour:
Color and I are one.
I am a painter.

— Paul Klee

The meaning and purpose of dancing is the dance.
Like music also, it is fulfilled in each moment of its course.
You do not play a sonata in order to reach the final chord,
and if the meaning of things were simply in ends,
composers would write nothing but finales.

— Alan Watts

I love you, I love you, I love you,
with the armchair and the book of death,
down the melancholy highway
in the iris’s darkened garret,
in our bed that was once the moon’s bed,
and in that dance, the turtle dreamed of.

— Federico García Lorca

Things I know but can’t explain
Not being convinced.
