A beautiful photographic fine arts series spanning the life cycle of the summer swallowtail. Taken from banded yellow and black caterpillar to beautiful black, blue and yellow butterfly facing its first sunrise, even before its wings flutter for the first time, the series is shot in beautiful clear detail that places you close enough to hear the caterpillar crunch, and the wings begin to flutter.
Native of Ohio, raised in South Louisiana by a father who loved flowers and gardening, and a mother who never met a book she didn't want to read, I have pondered writing for a long time. I find peace and calm when surrounded by flowers and books. I have spent more than 30 years in the education field as a teacher, administrator and consultant. And lately, I am having the best time teaching writing to kids from kindergarten to twelfth grade. On the other side of my world, for more 30 years, I have been building community thru building effective nonprofit organizations. As an NPO consultant, I have traveled to many corners of the world to teach and spread the message of community strength through nonprofits.
