Walking through Butler & Bailey, I feel a swell of joy
I sense positive change in my life
As if I am in the process of emerging from a cocoon.
I am calm
I can handle the next part of this journey with ease
I am happy!
I exit the store
To see a dragonfly dying on the sidewalk
Slowly moving its wings for the final time.

Sometimes a bug is just a bug…. 🙂

Master Barry, a thousand pebbles shall I attempt to snatch from your hand before coming close to amassing such wisdom!

I’m not sure if you are expressing true grasshopper-style respect for my pithy, yet insightful comment or just blowing smoke on (or up) me. But I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt 😉

Your bug comment was genius!
