The Touch

I took the following shots of a butterfly with my digi-cam while about to start washing clothes...a tiny brown winged friend rested on my forearm...I asked my son to quickly hand me my ever ready camera in a very soft voice so as not to scare it away...surprisingly it stayed with me until I practically got tired manipulating my gadget with one hand...it must have been the flowery scent of the soap that attracted it but sometimes I'd like to truly believe butterflies are souls coming back to earth to touch our lives...It reminded me to plant more trees and flowers around the house and to conserve water...Needless to say I was ecstatic that I did not have to travel far to take these macro shots...I only needed to wash our clothes manually outside...It pays not be lazy at times, hehehe...and to be hands on in taking care of one's kiddos...we get to enjoy the best of both worlds...ours and theirs...blessed weekend my friends...Let's help save dear mother nature...Advanced Happy Mother's Day one and all....

    I agree with you. West must protect our environment. To save Mother Earth begins with each one of us. Incidentally, being here in Bohol, I help promote Natural Farming, sustainable tourism and green resorts.
