Blogging Update: I now have three regular posts on this blog. Monday – Butterfly of the Week, Friday – 7 Bullet Friday, and now Wednesday – Quote of the Day. In addition to posting a Pinterest pin daily on the My Dreaming Butterfly Facebook page, I’m also creating an original “pinnable” quote using my own digital butterfly art and quotes that I’ve scavenged from reference books and websites (I discuss my favorite resource in today’s last bullet). Of course, I’ll still post updates on the progress of my first novel in the Dragon World series and short stories as they come. But, I’m getting myself in the habit of regular posts, and like any regimen, it’s starting to feel natural. Joy!
What I’m obsessed with this week: Quotes, quotes, quotes… I’m surrounded by books of quotes marked by post-it flags and spending countless hours pouring over websites. The hardest part is choosing which quotes to use first.
My favorite dream interpretation this week:
1. Because of its mysterious transmogrification from a caterpillar, the butterfly is a universal symbol for intense transformation, usually for the better.
2. If the butterfly is in the egg stage, the coming change is still but an idea.
3. In the larva stage, a decision needs to be made.
4. In the cocoon stage, you are working to make your dreams a reality.
5. An adult butterfly flying in the air indicates sharing, or the need to share, your ideas with the world.
My favorite Abraham quote this week:
“We want to speak about freedom: This is a Vibrational Universe. The only Source that flows is the Source of Well-Being. And, physical and Nonphysical, we are all free to allow that Well-Being to flow to us and through us or we can pinch it off. It is our call — every time…” —Abraham

My favorite writing prompt this week:
“Drunkenly, you accidentally pour vodka into your pet’s water bowl. As a result, your pet breaks the number one rule: do not speak to your owner… Ever.”
My favorite writing quote this week:
“There’s always something to write about. If there’s not, then you need to live life more aggressively.” –Min Kim
My favorite from the inter-webs: GoodReads isn’t just a good starting point to find the most-loved books in any particular genre, but it’s a great source for quotes from famous authors on any number of subjects: art, love, fear, inspiration, dreams, purpose, wisdom, passion, and more. It’s soon to become my go-to research for the butterfly illustrated quotes I’m posting on this blog weekly.
