You have wings…

"You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You were not meant for crawling, so don`t.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly."

    The secret of the universe is seen in a dragonfly.

  38. gdare says:

    I like how you said that.An article from Wikipedia:As a seasonal symbol in Japan, the dragonfly is associated with late summer and early autumn.[15]More generally, in Japan dragonflies are symbols of courage, strength, and happiness, and they often appear in art and literature, especially haiku. The love for dragonflies is reflected in the fact that there are traditional names for almost all of the 200 species of dragonflies found in and around Japan.[16] Japanese children catch large dragonflies as a game, using a hair with a small pebble tied to each end, which they throw into the air. The dragonfly mistakes the pebbles for prey, gets tangled in the hair, and is dragged to the ground by the weight.[9]:38As it symbolizes courage, boys are given the name of "Tombo", meaning dragonfly. The shape of the archipelago of Japan, as seen on a map, is said to be that of a dragonfly. Hence the leading male character in Kiki's Delivery Service, in a non-Japanese setting, is named "Tombo" so that the Japanese audience can identify with him.Beyond this one of Japan's former names โ€“ ใ‚ใใคใ—ใพ (Akitsushima) โ€“ is literally an archaic form of Dragonfly Island(s). This is attributed to a legend in which Japan's mythical founder, Emperor Jinmu, was bitten by a mosquito, which was then promptly eaten by a dragonfly. [17][18]

  39. Abbacus says:

    Very interesting post. For such a small land mass, Japan has such a rich and dramatic variety of life. So many deep and complicated stories are told there in the simplicity of a single leaf or one melting snowflake. Akitsushima :dragonfly:
