In Florida visiting my parents right now. The house and the plants outside the house are dotted with monarch butterfly chrysalises. They're a lot smaller than I imagined they would be...almost too small to hold these butterflies.
We came home one day and found this butterfly drying its wings just outside its chrysalis, so I snapped a pic.
I'm into lifting weights, running, and biking. In general, I'm a hit-and-run athlete. I've done hapkido, snorkling, deep sea fishing, karate, rockwall climbing, horseback riding, parasailing, hiking, etc. I will try anything active!
I'm also a migrant creative and have expressed myself through painting (done shows and sold stuff!), drawing, novel writing, poetry (published!), songwriting, playing piano, and guitar.
And, yes, I am a Zen Buddhist.
