M.G. Hawkingabout this book: The Butterfly is an elegant story regarding the mystery of life. If you enjoy insightful short stories -- the kind that prompt you to briefly put down your reading because you're inspired to think about what you've just read -- then you'll love this one. An enchanting tale that explores the power and the light of that pure bead of energy that animates us all, and the impossibility of endings.
"It is a pleasant late day, mid-August, warm with a heavier moist breath than that of the winter months. The gardeners are scoring the lawn opposite the window and, where the mowers have been, the grass lays flat and gleams with moisture. Such vigor comes rolling in from the newly cut lawns and pasture beyond that it is difficult to keep the eyes away. The birds too are keeping to one of their festivities, soaring round the tree tops until it looks as if a vast net with hundreds of black knots in it has been cast up into the air, which, after a few moments, sinks slowly down upon the trees until every twig seems to have a knot at the end of it. Then suddenly the net is thrown into the air again, in a wider circle this time, with the utmost clamor and vociferation, as though to be thrown into the air and settle slowly down upon the tree tops is a tremendously exciting experience."
A richly entertaining tale that will, if allowed, come to take on a life of its own. This book includes excerpts from The Living Part of A Myth, Five Years in the Valley of Masters book series.
