Friends who know me well know the best gifts they can give me are ones of experience. Spend an afternoon with me on the porch drinking mint juleps and talking about our cats…perfect! Ask me out for morning coffee on the beach to watch the sunrise…awesome! Take me to your favorite museum and chase down favorite artwork…the best!

One year for my birthday, a friend took me to a natural history museum for the daily butterfly release. It was a gray, Midwest winter day but standing in that greenhouse, surrounded by tropical trees and flowers and next to a little pond with a turtle in it felt like we were in the middle of a summer dream. Then the butterfly ambassadors came out, opened their cages, and dozens and dozens of hours-old butterflies (exotic species from all over the world) flickered their colorful wings and ventured into a new world for the first time. It was mesmerizing. Delicate, brave, curious little souls fluttering about, landing on people, plants, flowers, food and then moving on. One that kept catching my eye was the Blue Morpho. When their wings are closed, they are brown and have several “eyespots” along the edge. But when they open them, ooooohhhh….their wings are a gorgeous iridescent blue-turquoise. And with every wing motion, it was a surprise birthday gift, over and over again.

“Green was the silence, wet was the light, the month of June trembled like a butterfly.” {Pablo Neruda}
