WINGS OF THE BUTTERFLY
Myth from the Amazon Rainforest
One day a young girl named Chimiduye walked into the Amazon rainforest and became terribly lost. She cried out for help but could find none. Just when Chimidyue was ready to give up, she heard a voice offering to guide her home, and looked up to see a beautiful emerald butterfly. The butterfly guided Chimiduye to the Amazon river, and they saw that it was blocking her way home. So the butterfly whispered a chant and transformed the girl to match itself. Chimiduye took to the sky on beautiful wings. When she landed, she changed again, growing until she was human, but her heart remained bright and winged like a butterfly.
Tell me about a place that transformed you while you were there.
