Frolic with the butterflies is an amazing thing to watch. It is amazing as one watches them dance from flower to flower, the sun casting light just enough to make the wings seem transparent, forcing shadows through paper thin wings of time.

love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like nobody’s watching,
and live like its heaven on earth.”
