Hello everyone. "The Little Prince" is one of my favorite books. It is written as a children's book but it has so many powerful life lessons. Here is one of my favorite quotes from the book:
"Well, I must endure the presence of a few caterpillars if I wish to become acquainted with the butterflies."
All artistic works certainly have more than one interpretation, but here is mine: Life is not always a smooth and happy journey, but we get through the tough times to find our joy. People are not always exactly who we want them to be, but with openness and tolerance we can come to appreciate what we do love about them. I believe that certainly applies to the rest of our lives as well.
Thank you everyone, and have a good day. (Photos: The Monarch I took in front of my building last year and the caterpillar, the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Preserve several years ago)
