now it is about the butterflies

I have been fascinated by the monarch butterflies for a long time. They are mysterious, beautiful and awe inspiring.

A facebook friend posted this video yesterday on the monarch butterfly emerging from a cocoon. I witnessed the transformation about 15 years ago in Northern Wisconsin and it was seared into my memory. I have since felt a very strong affinity with the butterfly and have incorporated it into my work at various times.
