Life is Golden

Life is golden lately.
I've been walking through the towering pines and creek beds as often as I can.
It's an amazing thing, as the last few years this proved an impossible feat.
And on these walks, I've been saving butterflies.
Their little bodies lie prone against the icy creek water where they await their watery deaths. 
I lift them out and help their papery wings to dry.
It's so good to watch them unfurl into the sky ready to fulfill yet another rotation under the sun. 
Nature is an amazing thing, and it's so healing to be out in it; to be a participant in it.
To participate in life once again is a grand, grand thing.
Hope you're enjoying your summer (or winter!)
Much love,
