It’s okay that you’re a hairy caterpillar today; eventually you’ll be a butterfly. Cha!
Thanks to Darian Âcikahtê for audio – to Sol for the photo and words of encouragement, and, of course, to the hairy caterpillar for mild predictions.
(And remember that Cree uses the same word for butterfly as for moth!)
