In a mood for love

Two people in love, alone, isolated from the world, that’s beautiful.
Milan Kundera

people say love is the best medicine of all
people say also that just when you think it can’t get any worse, it can. And just when you think it can’t get any better, it can
I need that remedy and I want that chance to proove, to myself, that it really can any better..

Great Mystery, teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my Sacred Space and love beyond my fear, and thus Walk Balance with the passing of each glorious Sun — Lakota prayer

* Zonta is a Lakota name and stands for Trustworthy

I have always been impressed by the butterflies life cycle and their complete metamorphosis. I made this earrings playing with the materials, for fun. I didn’t really think, that they are wearable, but a friend saw them and fall in love with. She just said” Unique!” 🙂

Butterfly Symbolism:

Overwhelmingly, cultural myth and lore honor the butterfly as a symbol of transformation because of its impressive process of metamorphosis.

From egg, to larvae (caterpillar), to pupa (the chrysalis or cocoon) and from the cocoon the butterfly emerges in her unfurling glory.

Herein lies the deepest symbolic lesson of the butterfly. She asks us to accept the changes in our lives as casually as she does. The butterfly unquestioningly embraces the chances of her environment and her body.

It’s connection with the soul is rather fitting. We are all on a long journey of the soul. On this journey we encounter endless turns, shifts, and conditions that cause us to morph into ever-finer beings. At our soul-journey’s end we are inevitably changed – not at all the same as when we started on the path.

To take this analogy a step further, we can look again to the grace and eloquence of the butterfly and realize that our journey is our only guarantee. Our responsibility to make our way in faith, accept the change that comes, and emerge from our transitions as brilliantly as the butterfly.

I’m not a photographer, at least not a professional one, but I try to catch these rare, pure, sporadic and crispy moments of time and life, when there is a feeling, emotion, being, spirit.
On this picture are one of my best friends, soul mates and supporters and they are not in the center of the picture. That’s what makes it precious for me, but the view of Chicago is also nice, eh?
