Butterfly Exhibit

butterflies-1 On an early Saturday morning, S., Naomi, and I went into DC to visit the museums on the National Mall, our aim was to be one of the first to go through the special Butterfly Exhibit at the Natural History Museum.


We arrived with some time to spare, and were then ushered into the fiberglass enclosure that is a recreated tropical haven for butterflies from all over the world. To say this experience was magical would not describe it well enough to my mind… surrounded by live butterflies and the heady scents, moisture, and bright colors of the special space and to experience Naomi’s coo-ings and fragmented sounds that are fast becoming words is a memory I will hold onto forever.
