BLISSfix loves Butterfly Gardens!

Yesterday Sean and I visited the Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center in Denver, CO.  I had been to a Butterfly Garden once as a child in Atlanta, GA and I found that my delight at the magical world of insects hasn’t decreased in the slightest! 🙂  Sean and I were like joy-filled kids again wandering around the exhibits looking at bugs that looked exactly like twigs and leaves, and holding a golden tarantula, and photographing thousands of butterflies all flitting around us.  One little girl dressed from head to toe in a butterfly dress had attracted a butterfly on the front of the dress that stayed there for more than 30 min.  I highly recommend this activity for children of all ages (years 0-109)!

The reason I acknowledge spending time with insects as a conscious activity is because I found that we were both in a childlike state of wonder and amazement.  We were reveling in the creations of this planet and completely in the moment… watching for the next butterfly that might land on our shoulder.  That natural state of fascination and appreciation is the ultimate in connecting with the source that creates all things.  It’s a beautiful experience of joy and bliss.
