I'm leaving work and it was raining. I'm listening to Corinne Bailey Rae's album, and "Butterfly" is playing. It's a really beautiful song...the opening lyrics make you instantly nostalgic and introspective (I'd load it for you to listen, but my PC is acting funky). Anyway, the rain's beating down and traffic is not moving at all and just as Corinne sings 'Would you live your life/Like a butterfly', I look out of my window to the left and there's a school bus beside me with a picture of a butterfly by the door. You know how school buses have little symbols to help the little kids know which bus to get on after school? Anyway. That's it. Y'all know I'm always looking for meaning and "signs" in little things, and although I'm not sure there was any meaning in that moment, it was pretty awesome at that moment...to hear and see 'butterfly' at the same time.
