Monarch Miracle

Your friend's education blog is totally inspiring—and captures the wonder of learning and then, passing it on, by teaching. Also, what poetic writing.

I know you and Rob have already read and responded to the blog, but during these last days of August, when the Monarchs are "called to fly to Mexico," I just have to quote Marla McLean's vision of . . . well . . . having vision.

If we are to share the ancient beliefs of Mexican people, then we believe that Monarchs carry the souls of our ancestors. If you have ever raised Monarchs, and have witnessed the transformation of the tiny little egg, into a caterpillar, into a chrysalis, and then observe the metamorphosis with your own eyes, then you are a person who believes in miracles and the unimaginable.
