Simple . . . a state of mind. Not complicated, not always easy, but definitely not empty.
Silence. . . music for the soul. Not necessarily the absence of sound, but of noise that disrupts the contemplative mind.
Solitude. . . a state of being alone. Not lonely, but refreshing the mind, cultivating a relationship with oneself and nature.
Yep, the three s's were my motto for this summer when I wasn't in the crazy house taking care of caterpillar business. I've lost count, but I'm sure I've released more butterflies this summer than last. There has been more disease and predators to deal with too. My last batch of about 70 was released last week and I already see momas in the patch. The milkweed has finally gotten some serious growth but not for the amount of new eggs I see being laid.
I may also need someone to throw me a rope to climp out of the never ending photos to edit. I don't know why I do this to myself. It took me days just to cull and download photos from 3 full memory cards. But, I have photos of emerging butterflies, the pupation, and a caterpillar coming out of his egg!
I'm going to be busy . . . send chocolate! lol
We have a new theme over at Focusing on Life, where you can also find me today . . . it's going to be a fun month!
