Again Jill collected eggs and watched. This time she captured this process with photos.

The words of this story evolved as she reflected on her life and became more aware of the delicate and magical process which connects all of life like a glistening spider web.

Jill’s son recently asked her this question, “Does the caterpillar think its life is over as it builds the chrysalis? Or is it aware that it is becoming a Butterfly?”

I replied, “I wonder if he simply thinks,

                “How does it get better than this?”

                “What else is possible?’

                  And so it is.

Jill has had a longtime fascination with butterflies. When she was very young, her father constructed a progressive butterfly enclosure for her to collect, raise and observe the life cycle of the Monarch. Jill really enjoyed the collecting of eggs on milkweed plants, watching the caterpillars grow day by day, the beautiful creation of the chrysalis, and the magic moment of the transformation into butterfly!

Recreating this experience again 50 years later in a beautiful garden Jill’s husband created for her, occurred about the same time their three sons were moving through their transformation and emerging into adulthood.
