Today on a grassy field in the schoolyard, I experienced the most magical moment.
While standing with a group of students who were releasing the butterflies they had raised in the classroom,one of the butterflies flew around and down and landed on my shirt. What a thrilling feeling of utter delight. After a few seconds the butterfly flew up,around my head and landed on my shoulder. Granted there were 5 butterflies released. They were just beginning their life as butterflies and didn't know any better. It was still an amazing and beautiful thing. The students were delighted as well. It was the talk of the lunchroom.
Never in a million years would I have ever dreamed a butterfly would choose to land upon me....not once but twice.
