This almost knocked me out of my chair. My mom just passed away in November. Something very similar happened to me. I've been seeing yellow butterflies ever since.

Even taking into consideration that this has long been my favorite blog, so I might be higher on some of your posts than some others are---this entry(really this art) is universally sanative.

This is beautiful...even though it brought tears to my eyes. This morning I attended a dear friend's funeral. One of the photos in the slide show was of her standing in front of a beuatiful vivid and brilliant purple bush, not a lilac it was somewhere in South America I'm saving this and will think of her everytime I see it.

This was an excellent entry, arguably the best I have ever read of yours. You are really gifted, Russ.

I had to come back to print this...just because it is perfect.

This is a beautiful one, Russ, but your sadness made my heart ache. I understand, too.
