A few minutes ago, I was absentmindedly pondering about how much I love daisies and daydreaming as to why (I’d just seen a beautiful image of some) and then, all of a sudden, a butterfly burst into view from behind my curtains (which were closed at the time). As soon as I reached for my phone to capture the moment, my winged acquaintance flew away, its departure a cascade of variant hues and light on my wall.
I was puzzled shortly afterwards though, because I remembered that I had closed my bedroom windows. Where on earth had the graceful insect come from and where was it now?
I opened the curtains tentatively and lo and behold, there the butterfly was, fluttering in agitation at being disturbed, no doubt, wanting to be outside.
The butterfly flitted across the room - searching for an exit I suspect - several times. I protected myself, underneath my bedclothes, from being flown into (which I wasn’t keen on!) and when I reemerged finally, I realised that my guest had gone.
Prior to my colourful visitor’s arrival, I had also been contemplating - as well as pretty flowers - about my passion for life and how it has been a mostly positive year for me so far.
Was this discovery a good omen for today or even for the rest of 2014? It could certainly be perceived that way! It is likely though that this occurrence was just a happy coincidence that interlinked well with my mood. Whichever way you look at it, I can definitely say that I had a surprising and almost magical tint to the beginning of my day!
