Ophelia's Butterfly Philosophy

Ophelia had a theory about butterflies. As she watched a feathery-winged butterfly visiting sweet blooms in her garden, she realized she had never seen a butterfly on anything that wasn’t sweet. Also, anytime she had seen a butterfly actually land on a person or even on her dog’s furry head, it was always at a peaceful tender moment. She had never seen a butterfly while being scolded or even during a heated disagreement with another. Maybe they know. Maybe they can sense peace and calm, and only appear at such times to make it more memorable for us…reminding us to stay in touch with something bigger then ourselves. Anyway, it was just a theory, just something to think about while in her garden.
