abstract butterfly

being moved by an unexpected thing

"Every time I see the Dakota,
I think about that night,
Shots rang out, the angry shouts,
a man losing his life.
Well, it's something we shouldn't dwell upon
but it's something we shouldn't ignore--
too many good men have been cut down,
let's pray there won't be any more".--Christine Lavin

My emotions surprise me. I sometimes prove to have a strong feeling over something I never thought I cared much about. I remember the week that John Lennon was killed, when it mattered a great deal to me and all in my circle, though I never imagined that it would matter so much to everyone.
