metamorphosis



People who cannot suffer can never grow up, can never discover who they are.

~ James Baldwin ~

from his book
The Fire Next Time


Not sure I agree with this quote, but it kind of goes with the butterfly...don't you think?

More words are coming. I can feel them approaching.

P.S. Surely this image would be a contest winner.

No light without dark. You know the metamorphosis story from Zorba the Greek, right? The butterfly cannot unfurl its wings without the struggle from the cocoon.

I agree with Kathryn about the photo. Wow!

I think those that "cannot" suffer have a whole different level of suffering going on - perhaps the worst of all.
