“Just living is not enough,”
said the butterfly.
“One must have sunshine,
freedom and a little flower.”
Hans Christian Andersen
“Beauty is a primeval phenomenon,
which itself never makes its appearance,
but the reflection of which is visible in
a thousand different utterances
of the creative mind,
and is as various as nature herself.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“The mark of your ignorance is
the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy.
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world,
the master calls a butterfly.”
“When she walked…
she stretched out long and thin like a little tiger,
and held her head high to look over
the grass as if she were treading the jungle.”
“I embrace emerging experience.
I participate in discovery.
I am a butterfly.
I am not a butterfly collector.
I want the experience of the butterfly.”
WOW… so those dials in Lightroom are powerful creatures. After yesterday’s dive off the cliff of creativity this beauty came to life! Or was I pushed? See what you did Ron Clifford ;o). Something tells me 2013 is going to be a BEAUTIFUL year!
“How does one become a butterfly?”
she asked pensively.
“You must want to fly so much that you
are willing to give up being a caterpillar.”
“The most difficult thing is the decision to act,
the rest is merely tenacity.
The fears are paper tigers.
You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life;
and the procedure, the process is its own reward.”
