A reminder from butterflies

She liked being reminded of butterflies. She remembered being six or seven and crying over the fates of the butterflies in her yard after learning that they lived for only a few days. Her mother had comforted her and told her not to be sad for the butterflies, that just because their lives were short... Continue Reading →

Marvelous earth

  Sometimes, I cannot help but stare in awe at nature -- even if it's just a photo. The one featured above is an example of a natural phenomenon captured in Iceland where Northern Lights were passing through.

I may never learn to breathe underwater, but snorkeling helps me pretend when I peek at the world below the surface. Everything is quiet and a certain peacefulness embraces me once I am under.


This picture reminds me of my parents. No, they don't look like elephants:)  ... but I know that the amount of unconditional love they poured out to us as we were growing up is enormous. Immeasurable. Though we've had our fair share of typical arguments (I was a teenager once, after all), I've grown to... Continue Reading →
