“They seemed to come suddenly upon happiness as if they had surprised a butterfly in the winter woods.”
[Edith Wharton]

The unexpected joy of discovering that which you desire is really there before you.
“Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp,” Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote, “but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”

Today and all days, may our paths be blessed with butterflies.
