Birds and butterflies

They are the joys of my life, and now that I am no longer able to see them, I use my memories of them to keep on enjoying.

There were the days when I used to admire their gorgeous colors. Their gracefulness and their agility. Their friendliness and their silent companionship.

I can still hear my birds each morning as they sing to me from my balcony, but alas! It is not the same for my butterflies. They won't come near me when I am indoors and even when I walk outside, they are almost never around. I have to make a conscious effort to travel to where they congregate. That's okay though, I still have my memories of them to keep me going.

Those cherished days as a kid when my dad used to lay them gently in my tiny hand and I would stand as still as I could and look down at them. They were so delicate and so beautiful. Then there were my birds! I loved them when they were free and I loved them when they were mine.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"If you either are or have been a victim of crime, violence, abuse, or bullying, and if you are simply tired of being bombarded with audios and scenes of the above, then I am asking for your support. I have written and recorded audio mysteries that are completely void of vivid descriptions of sex, crime, and violence because I firmly believe that it is time for us to use the spoken word to help influence our kids to start listening to content that is clean and healthy. By doing this we can all do our part to tackle crime in a positive and meaningful way and it only costs pennies per day. Visit my online store at
I thank you and your kids will also thank you!"
