butterfly maya angelou

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”–Maya Angelou

It’s quite fitting that the image accompanying this post shows a butterfly alighting on the head of a Thrasher staff member’s teenage son. Ms. Angelou wrote often about transformation. The same staffer once heard the great poet speak in person. “It was a transforming experience,” she said.

We pay tribute to Maya Angelou in her final metamorphosis.
