A Sweet Treat

Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp,
but~if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

i simply love butterflies, they're so beautiful in their tiny, fragile bodies. i miss seeing them here. we don't have as many circulating. maybe i'm just in the wrong location. hope all is well.
