The Monarch Butterfly

“Pride and acknowledgement of where we come from and hopeful for the years and generations ahead continuing the next chapter of the travels you took.”

“At some point in our bloodline we are all travellers. Like the Monarch butterflies fluttering through North America to settle and pass on, and just like that the process begins all over again with another generation carrying on the old with the new. Butterflies carrying nothing but the blood of their ancestors and a dream into the unknown.”
