In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Symbol.”
The butterfly effect
The scientific theory that a single occurrence, no matter how small, can change the course of the universe forever.
The theory that everything that happens must happen; that you can’t save one thing without destroying something else. Coming from the idea of a butterfly caught in a spider’s web. You can’t save the butterfly without killing the spider (through violence or starvation).
Theory that everything matters. That even the flutter of a butterfly’s wings can cause a hurricane on the other side of the world. If you change even the smallest of life’s details, you completely change its outcome.
The butterfly is a symbol of beauty but more than that, for me it encapsulates the existence of the ripple effect.
Someone once told me that every good deed creates a ripple effect and I truly believe that:)
Our world is full of endless unknowns but one thing I am sure off is that ‘good creates great’, that giving enables others to gift even more…that a smile can sometimes dry out tears and even if we feel lonely, we are never alone:)
The butterfly…what does it mean to you?
I am also posting for Lucile’s Photo 101 Rehab…a place of constant greatness.
I took a short break from the Clinic as I am working on Camera Lucida Link, a great opportunity for anyone who loves photography to expose their work in a weekly photo challenge:)
First week’s theme is Enchanted…
Eager to embark onto a new adventure?
