About this piece:
My grandmother has a beautiful rosebush that always has butterflies fluttering around it. As a kid I would sometimes wait near it and see if a butterfly would come and "kiss" my hand. Of course, I was never patient enough to stay still too long and creeping up on butterflies doesn't work too well. However, that never discouraged me from dreaming about having all those beautiful and delicate butterflies flutter down and bless me with a kiss or surround me with their wonder.
That is what this piece is about. It's the feeling of a wish, or the memory of life's small wonders, the spark of a child's imagination and the beauty of it all being carried by the wind.
