One of my selections our 50 Women Challenge was George Sand, a pseudonym for the nineteenth-century French author Amantine-Lucile-Aurore Dupin.  I have wanted to read her work for such a long time, but rather than plump for one of her novels, due to time constraints I decided to settle for a novella. 233 more words

Les papillons ne sont que des fleurs envolées

“Les papillons ne sont que des fleurs envolées un jour de fête où la nature était en veine d’invention et de fécondité.” “Butterflies are but flowers that blew away one sunny day when Nature was feeling at her most inventive and fertile.” George Sand. The photo: © Roberto Malfatti
