The moths, like butterflies, represent transformation only they tend to be associated with the moon and more of a feminine aspect because of their nocturnal natures.
I did this piece while I was going through a rather rough period of transformation myself. And as I was transforming, I needed to remind myself that I was okay and I was safely surrounded by people who truly loved and cared about me no matter what.
So I wrote ” I have been given a safe place to be me… warts and all”. And that is true.

I think we all need to be reminded that we are loved and to allow our loved ones and ourselves the space to continue to grow and transform into the beautiful beings we truly are.
