Day 1, 2010

I woke up early despite having slept for only 4 hours from the previous night’s new year revelry. Then again, sleep has never been my ally. So this first morning of 2010 has nothing new to offer…or so I thought.

I swept the floor of the house from the second floor down. Then I swept the garage and the front patio. Next chore was to water Nanay’s plants. I liked the idea of starting the year responsibly. As I was watering the plants, I saw this:

this caterpillar stopped me from what I was doing
call me drama queen, but how often do you see caterpillars these days?
it probably fell on the stones from the bush
wait, are you still going to turn into a butterfly now that you're out of your coccoon?

Thanks to this caterpillar, a warm feeling swept over me. Somehow, I felt like this year will be much better and kinder to me. I don’t know why, but I do hope so.
