But not the Kafka-esque kind.

I needed to post a little something lighter after my last rantlet. So I thought of butterflies. Even though lepidopterae have mixed symbolic significance, I choose to think of them always in a positive light. And the symbolism of change they represent is apt, in the context of all the changes happening 'round here.

To my darling daughter . . . I give you wings.

    Your daughter is a most lucky young lady.

    Thank you, Doug! (BTW, she briefly - very briefly - looked at Queen's University when she was considering Canadian schools.)
