Just Like This


The butterfly counts not months but moments and has time enough.

Rabindranath Tagor



“The great loneliness- like the loneliness a caterpillar endures when she wraps herself in a silky shroud and begins the long transformation from chrysalis to butterfly.
It seems we too must go through such a time, when life as we have known it is over- when being a caterpillar feels somehow false and yet we don’t know who we are supposed to become.
All we know is that something bigger is calling us to change.
And though we must make the journey alone, and even if suffering is our only companion,
soon enough we will become a butterfly,
soon enough we will taste the rapture of being alive.”
Elizabeth Lesser
