Patience doesn’t mean making a pact with the devil of denial, ignoring our emotions and aspirations. It means being wholeheartedly engaged in the process that’s unfolding, rather than ripping open a budding flower or demanding a caterpillar hurry up and get that chrysalis stage over with.

    Oh my goodness, I m not sure if the devil (with horns) caterpillar is what I had in mind, but yes this does seem fitting for butterfly week. Hmm perhaps a cocoon is in order as well :). As usual, great photo and quote!

      A cocoon maybe being a comfy place the caterpillar might not want to emerge from given predators and knowing, too, that his gorgeous new butterfly self will be short?? Hmm – –
