Beyond the Butterflies

  1. girl with butterflies

Throughout our lives there are challenges. Some, indeed, are scary and test our nerves. Then there are those we choose to face, as in the case of the young gymnast stepping out on the balance beam. Self-doubt, fear of failure or disaster, the shame of embarrassment, just has to be met. Commitment, training and resolve all enter in to favor the youngster.

“Butterflies”, a term that is often used to convey the tenseness, is chosen for the depiction here. These small figures in their outward, rearward flight imply that while their presence continues, their impact can be diminished.
