Hence the butterflies, caterpillars, and chrysalids. In pale glowing celadon and quivering singing aliveness- this cycle, this growing and changing is religious, spiritual. Here is your temple, your cathedral, your superhuman beings. Watching these little cases of changing form, my mind is helpless but to expand- these little green pods pop all the Tupperware lids off of the contained contents of my mind and all the ideas burst out of their compartments and over flow all together in a primordial soup out of which ideas grow and blossom. What change can emerge by metamorphosis in even bystanders & passersby!
