Word for Wednesday: Papilionidae
At this stage of parenthood, “developing my own interests” may be as simple and uninvolved as chasing backyard butterflies.
Add a little Wordsworth, and it seems more aspiring… 🙂
I’ve watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly! Indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless! – not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!
(William Wordsworth, “To a Butterfly”)
Hoping you find joy in something simple and uncomplicated today, too.
