Life is like a butterfly

Today I had a lesson from Eden in making butterflies. Actually, she made the butterflies (out of toilet paper and sticky tape) and then she chose some colours for both of us to bring 'em to life. The results are shown on the picture below, and I think you will agree that she did a pretty amazing job.

Making paper butterflies with my daughter this morning, I was reminded that one of the only true constants in life is change. For many of us, the beginning of a new year provides a catalyst for transformation; but changes can be so hard, so painful to bear.

I guess, beneath it all, we are all as fragile as butterflies, exquisitely shaped by the changes that life takes us through. And, in spite of the seeming inevitable brutality of existence against our fragile forms, nothing can stop our beautiful colours from shining through.Thank you Eden, for this morning's wonderful lesson in butterfly art - and thank you, Mister Hirst - click on the picture below to see some more stunningly conflicted and transformative images of the butterfly.
