After having flown together in glory, Mama and Papa butterflies hibernate. Spring marks the time when they come together in love, mate and create the next generation called Caterpillars. Then slipping into the breath of eternity, off to Heaven the Butterflies go.
The new Caterpillars eat and grow. As they become wiser,they shed layers of skin and embracing the unknown, become a Chrysalis shell. Nurturing themselves within the protection their Chrysalis, they soon grow and become the new beautiful, exquisite Mama and Papa Butterflies.
This is the Metamorphosis of Life.

Journey of the
Melony McGant, poet, storyteller, humanist and world lover of children lives on HOPE; works to breathe in love, and exhales fear (false expectations appearing real). She says "Perhaps our current challenges are wake-up calls for our collective awakening to truth." And she believes that the truth is, there is no need for our constant bickering, our disdain for eachother, for wars and killing, for world hunger, massive disease, for discrimination, subjugation, or oppression. She maintains that LOVE, even on a rainy day, is the answer to our dreams, our individual quests, and our future collective identity. "If we can learn to value our children, our elders, ourselves, and our Mother Earth=Heart, then surely we have the power to impact society and to create a world filled with JOY."
