Welcome to my blog!
“So why Blue Morpho?”, I hear you ask.
I chose my blog name for the Blue Morpho butterfly (Morpho Menelaus), which is a most beautiful species with brilliant, iridescent blue wings.
It mainly lives in neotropical areas of South and Central America, and some in Mexico. I saw some a few years ago in the rainforest in Ecuador, and their colour just blew me away. That bright metallic blue flapping amid the green and brown of the trees.
Then there’s a whole lot of symbolism associated with butterflies, like the ancient Greek Myth of Psyche. They are supposed to represent the soul, femininity, travellers, and transformation. I like that.
I also like the word “morpho” being part of the name of this butterfly. It makes me think of metamorphosis, evolution, change. And that’s always something good to keep in your life.
As for the number, 37, well really that’s just 3 and 7 together and I chose them because they always appear as magic numbers in fairytales. Have you noticed that?
So I thought I would ask for a bit of lucky protection and magic from those powerful numbers and that beautiful, fragile butterfly with its strong Amazonian wings.
Thanks a lot for coming, and I hope you enjoy the journey.
