Hmm ... eggplant, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini -- and herbs too. Such delicious possibilities! Ratatouille? Farmer's Market sandwiches? Veggie lasagna?
It all sounds good. Now is the time when we pick up the pieces, dry our tears and go on. Hard to feel bereft with so much edible bounty surrounding us, and so much of creation's beauty at our fingertips.
I did not make my friend's Celebration of Life service, which was several hours away by plane, but while working yesterday I did get a visit from this beautiful creature, who flitted and danced around me (not my image, but the same kind of butterfly).
She reminded me that we are all just caterpillars, waiting to become eternal butterflies. And in the meantime....life goes on.
