Examining the Hidden and the Delicate

Have you noticed when observing a butterfly’s torn wing that it
continues to go about its business of flying and collecting nectar? Its damaged wing does not deter it from carrying out its purpose.

All of us have narratives to tell. No matter our pain and how we handle it, we continue to press on, more often than not evoking courage and growth. When we are willing to look beyond the obvious, there is no limit to finding meaning..

“Something opens our wings.
Something makes boredom and hurt disappear.
Someone fills the cup in front of us.
We taste only sacredness.”

- Rumi
