Another New Aphorism

"Respect may not always beget respect, but only respect can beget respect."

Part of my answer to a person who thought he could do no wrong on the internet.

Ghostly Double..?

Trees astrally project, too.


Conjunction

Random things.  The location and orientation of the crack in the sidewalk; the decision of the city of Downey to place the traffic sign at that particular spot; the position of the Sun -- which really means the position of the Earth in its orbit at this particular minute, hour and day of the year -- and my strolling by this particular spot just then -- all came together by chance to neatly bisect the shadow of the sign.

A New Neighborhood Butterfly

I say "New", because my guess is that this is not the same butterfly I named the Neighborhood Butterfly last year.  But since it looks to be the same species, and I did witness a pair of them mating, I suppose this individual could be their direct descendant.  Which makes it the New Neighborhood Butterfly for the neighborhood.
