We passed a restaurant called 'Papillon' which is french for Butterfly. This reminded me of the blue butterfly tattoo my brother had on his chest in homage to his favorite book 'Papillon'. I was laughing with my friend about how he used to show it to people and tell them it meant 'not welcome', like the scene in American History X. Then my friend noted that we were just, 5 minutes before, listening to the Kendrick Lamar album 'To Pimp a Butterfly' in the car. We thought that was an interesting piece of synchronicity and just at that moment, I looked down and found this rusty butterfly broach at my feet in the dirt of a tree planter.
'In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.'
Basically a butterfly can flap it's wings on one side of the world and, ultimately, effect the weather on the other side.
What goes around, comes around.
Magic is everywhere.
(and you are welcome)
On Monday I worked the holiday
