The monarch, with its distinctive orange and black pattern, is considered one the world’s most beautiful butterflies. In North America, thousands of monarchs gather in autumn and migrate southward, sometimes more than 1,800 miles (2,900 km), and return north in spring.

Beautiful Music: Silence — Sarah McLachlan



Silence……….. 

Give me release 
witness me 
I am outside 
give me peace 

Heaven holds a sense of wonder 
and I wanted to believe 
that I’d get caught up 
when the rage in me subsides 

In this white wave 
I am sinking 
in this silence 
In this white wave 
in this silence 
I believe 

I can’t help this longing 
comfort me 
I can’t hold it all in 
if you won’t let me 

Heaven holds a sense of wonder 
and I wanted to believe 
that I’d get caught up 
when the rage in me subsides 

In this white wave 
I am sinking 
in this silence 
In this white wave 
in this silence 
I believe 

I have seen you
in this white wave you are silent 
you are breathing in this white wave
