As I was preparing a ceremony for a funeral service tomorrow I came across these words from the American writer, Richard Bach -

'What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.'

This was a reminder to me of the importance of perspective in life and of finding meaning in the world and the events around us. Of course this can be extremely difficult, even impossible when facing some of the experiences that we are forced to face in our lives. Still, it was lovely to come across these words this morning.
