I want to live in your garden as a butterfly or something. All of your flowers are just so well taken care of.

The pride and compassion you have really shows in all of your creations. Heart - Free

No, you don't want to be a butterfly in my garden, I am afraid of butterflies

You're the second person I've met who is afraid of butterflies and I can never understand why. But what about that monarch picture you posted? :-(

i am not going into the details, let's just say i am afraid of butterflies...no other ways around this fear...in addition it is important to respect the fear/phobia of others even when you do not understand why....! for example, i am not scared of spiders at all, but totally understand and respect there are many who are....

as far as the photo, i am not going to explain "what about...!" it is not an easy task to take a nice photo of moving/flying butterfly, i am proud of it, hence posted it

Yeah, you're right. Sorry, I never intended to judge you. I should quit trying to figure out why everyone does what they do. People are just unique in every mysterious way.

It's a beautiful photo, but I was just surprised since I learned of your fear of them. No harm intended, honestly.

This is a very pretty piece! I really like the way the colors intermingle. The yellows, pinks, and greens make me think of summertime (which I miss right now! :)

Also, I really like the composition. Having the flower off to one side makes it so much prettier than having it right in the center.

I think my favorite part of this is that even though it's a photograph, it looks like it was done with pastels. The focus on the subject is fantastic, giving the work a very thoughtful, wistful feel.

Please allow me to thank you sincerely, YOU READ my mind and intention...i am actually quite surprised at what you wrote...when i was getting ready to take this photo, i said myself "i wonder what can i do to make it look like a pastel painting?" (if it was possible at all)...after i loaded the images onto my laptop, i was 80% pleased with it...why 80%? Because it allows me continue to make improvements.

Thank you again :heart:

Georgia Totto O'Keeffe - in 1929, when she began working part of the year in Northern New Mexico, then in 1949, she made NM her permanent home

No, no excuses, books allows your mind travel to anywhere you want to be.....think of this way...when i first came to this country, i could say "how are you" and etc, the super basic stuff...

Only you can stop yourself from growing, i know this sounds cliche, but per Nelson Mandela - "Our deepest fear" - We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually who are you not to be?
