Way back in 1972 there was a wonderful little movie with Goldie Hawn, Edward Albert, Jr., and Eileen
Brennan Heckart titled “Butterflies Are Free”. While parts of the movie may appear to be dated, the story itself is not. On the surface, it is about those society used to refer to as “Free Spirits” and about the limitations imposed by physical disabilities but underneath the covers it’s really about how we each view ourselves, why, and what really makes one free. If you haven’t seen this flick – or even heard of it, I highly recommend getting hold of a copy. I plan on doing so myself as it’s been 30+ years since I last saw it but I’ve got a feeling that it will still be as powerful as I remember it.
“There are none so blind as those who will not see.” – “Little Donnie Dark” fictional storybook character from the movie, “Butterflies Are Free”
In keeping with the theme of butterflies, I’m serving up a small selection of butterfly images I recently made for a rather large, ambitious project I’ve started to work on. (More about that to come in the next few weeks and months. But the primary inspiration behind it is my theory that, as long as there are still things left to do on your “Bucket List” you’re not allowed to die yet. (For those of you looking for loopholes in that theory, I’ve checked. And No, procrastination won’t win you extra time, and the tasks on your list have to be ones that are intended to make the world a little bit better for your having been here. Seems reasonable to me, at least, so worth a try.)
