Autumn butterflies

Even though cooler weather has arrived, several butterflies are still lingering around, tempted by a variety of wildflowers that are currently in bloom.

“Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life, and everyone deserves a little sunshine.”  ~Jeffrey Glassberg

A pause in the flurry

Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit.  Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.  ~St. Francis de Sales
