“But you can fly…” – a small fable

A butterfly flew nearby. She saw the orchids and said to them, “You are like a magic floating carpet, so beautiful with the most enchanting colours! I envy you! Every day you can enjoy each others company, bask in the light, and be safe and happy. But I must work hard to find food and be afraid of predators.”

At this, the flowers whispered amongst themselves and answered her, “But you can fly…”

    Muchas gracias por estos regalos intangibles y profundos!! Únicos y especiales!! Mágicos e infinitos!!

    Sigue volando aunque hayan depredadores, aunque tengas que buscar la comida y aunque tengas que trabajar duro. Tocar el alma de los demás es un regalo de un vuelo eterno!!
