Words for today.

‘Just living is not enough,’ said the butterfly.
‘One must have sunshine, freedom,
and a little flower.’

-Hans Christian Andersen

      Thanks for the comment. The lines struck me today as I came across them on the web. My family and I had just seen the butterfly exhibit at our local botanic garden last week. So, I’ve had butterflies lately, so to speak. What better image of freedom and sunshine than kids at play outside. So, there they are, my kids and wife.

      Btw, your blog site Read Between the Minds is interesting. I just began browsing it.
