Shadow of the Butterfly on the Fourth


Butterfly Shadow LogoI put out the flag this morning as I do every Fourth of July. Some years I think of my father’s WWII heroics, or our nation’s resolve to come together after 9/11. This time I am focused on the shadow of a butterfly, representing, in part, the freedom I enjoy to do what I want. But the “shadow” has greater meaning by itself–it lacks details when viewed alone much like President Trump’s practice of fabricating facts to fit an image that does not exist.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
