  2. Thank you for liking “Balanced Rocks.” Beautiful post! 🙂 As you can tell from my avatar, I like butterflies. They are wonderful to see in person and in photos. I recently learned that the butterfly is a symbol for the human soul, which makes me like butterflies even more.

    I also enjoyed the quote. I have thought about how we return to dust when we die, but it is interesting to think about having stardust in us while we live.

    • You’re most welcome. In Greek mythology, Psyche was known as the goddess of the soul and sometimes portrayed as a butterfly which is perhaps where the symbolism comes from. I always liked the quote of them being self propelled flowers. 🙂
      Great job with your “Balanced Rock” post! Very cool.

      • Thanks for letting me know about Psyche. I used to enjoy reading Greek and Roman mythology when I was a child, but I have not thought about Psyche in a long time.

        Butterflies as self-propelled flowers – what a clever way of describing them! 🙂 I like thinking of them that way too. 🙂

        I am glad you enjoyed my “Balanced Rock” post. I still have a hard time believing the man-made balanced rocks stay in place simply by positioning the individual rocks a certain way. In one video I saw, the balanced rock formation collapsed right after the artist finished building it, but in the video I included in my post the man-made balanced rocks stayed together for a while. Maybe they stay in place just long enough for photos and some video footage.
