Change alone is eternal, perpetual, immortal. ~ Arthur Schopenhauer
I have been amazed at how many dragonflies I’ve seen this summer, at times they felt like pesty flies that I needed to swat away ~ I’ve never seen so many! I’m surprised by the variety of size and colors they come in. This green one in the first photo is huge, I’d say about 8″ across, it scared me when it flew by, I did not know what it was until it landed.
They say the dragonfly symbolizes change and since there are so many I think it might correlate with BIG change?? For me this rings true. I’ve experienced some big changes, and so many people close to me are going through big life changing episodes. How about you?
While reading up on dragonflies, I found a few things that astound me… they can fly 45mph and can move in 6 directions – up, down, side to side, forward and backwards! And they hover like helicopters. They can see 360 degrees ~ I don’t understand how, but how cool is that!?
What I find most magical is the iridescent colors that dance around depending on the light. Perhaps they signify magical change.
I wish I had iridescent wings (⁀‵⁀)
