and on the day

that a royal prince was born

a baby sister was born

and our butterfly babies were born

each arrival was nothing less than spectacular.


“birth is the sudden opening of a window,

through which you look out upon a stupendous prospect.

for what has happened?

a miracle.

you have exchanged nothing for the possibility of everything.”

  1. If each of us reflected more on the miracle of birth…and life… the “big” things in life wouldn’t matter so much (material wealth, what we “have”) and the small things (like butterflies) would matter more!
