    Wow – first of all this is a lovely drawing with sweet words Rachel! Then I thought: What? Flying across continents? A butterfly? I googled to learn more, and it is true, butterflies can fly across continents and oceans and the Monarch Butterfly for example can fly up to 130km (!!!) a day! Unbelievable!
    What does it mean? Great strength to the humble and small too! πŸ™‚
    Thank you for teaching us all kind of things Rachel, and making us think about many more! πŸ™‚

  2. Diane says:

    Amazing fact that I didn’t know either–which tells me even more why I LOVE butterflies–thank you for your meaningful art!

  3. Thank you for this reminder πŸ™‚ Happy Monday, Rachel!

  4. Wow, these butterflies are amazing! Great words and art!

  5. What a wonderful reminder that something so small and humble can also be incredibly strong. Your artwork is eye-opening and full of good energy.

  6. oh rachel.
    sudden sweet tears
    on sipping the beauty
    from these words
    and from your own
    gossamer wings.
    Altogether beautiful.
    Love and thanks,
