The World of the Soul


Making figure “8” motions,

these winged messengers

delicately flit about

like angels  playing

in the garden. These

angel messengers deliver

pure joy to us. They

symbolize hope and rebirth.


They represent our life journey.

Hope, change, transformation,

these many-hued butterflies

are the world of the soul.

    • Thank you as well, Emily, for your inspiring photos of sunsets over the bay. A fun fact I learned was that butterflies can’t fly if their body temperature is less than 86F. No wonder I see so many gorgeous angels in Costa Rica and from photographer Sally, and her tropical climate. Your comment is much appreciated. Have a wonderful weekend! ^__^

    Liebe Mary Ann,
    eine beeindruckende Auswahl von außergewöhnlichen Fotos.Sally hat das Glück in einer Region fotografiren zu können,in der außergewöhnliche Objekte vor die Fotolinse kommen.Wenn man mit offenen Augen durch die Natur geht ,sieht man viele Dinge ,die man in der Hektik des Alltages sehr schnell übersieht ,beziehungsweise gar nicht erst beachtet.Leider kann man im fotografischen Gedächnis nicht Alles festhalten.Man kann sich aber an vielen ,auch kleinen Dingen erfreuen.
    Dir und deiner Familie eine wunderbare Herbstzeit.Für mich beginnt jetzt im Herbst wieder die Suche nach außergewöhnlichen Herbstfarben und Herbstmotiven.
    Alles liebe und Gute
    Dein Arno

    • Thank you, Arno, for the lovely and insightful comment. This time of year is very colorful here, and I, too, find myself searching for the colors. The winter hues are different. Success in your search and enjoy the season. Regards, Mary Ann

    • Thanks for finding it and for your lovely comment. Sometimes I go back through what I have written when someone comments at a later date. I think I surprise myself sometimes and wonder at the words and images. Maybe an angel controlling things? Have good week ahead.
