Big Butterfly/Μεγαλη Πεταλουδα

A big butterfly-the largest I’ve ever seen- landed in my garden yesterday.

Μια μεγάλη πεταλούδα – η μεγαλύτερη που έχω δει ποτέ – προσγειώθηκε χθες στον κήπο μου.

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.” -Nathaniel Hawthorne

The Soul/H Ψυχη

A white butterfly on a flower.

For the Japanese the white butterfly represents the soul of the departed one, so I thought that it would be appropriate to post this photograph of a white butterfly for a friend who recently lost a loved one..

“No one can confidently say that he will still be living tomorrow.”-Euripides (Ancient Greek Writer 480B.C-406 B.C)
