I am fighting a serious illness, and between continuing my work schedule and seeing doctors and dealing with frustrating and painful symptoms, I have been unable to release my butterflies on schedule. I hope for an improvement soon.

I got a delightful rush of excitement releasing this butterfly. I left it on the newspaper box on the way into Lizard's Thicket to have lunch with my parents and grandmother, and when I came out afterwards, it was gone. I was surprised how thrilling it was to realize that someone found it - I so rarely wait around after I release them, and it felt special to realize that it really went home with someone.

Two butterflies hid themselves inside of books at Richland Library Northeast! Another landed in the watermelons at Trader Joe's..

I think I will hide more in books. It seems like it would be a wonderful surprise, or an opportunity for a blog reader to have a treasure hunt.

Butterflies took a road trip with me to Charleston today, and I released three in the downtown area.

I am still trying to balance my desire for photos with a (so far) stronger desire to be sneaky and subtle. If any readers have experience with this situation, I would welcome advice.

I am finding it a challenge to photograph some of my butterfly releases! I am trying to be sneaky, and the past few days, that means I have dropped and ran instead of staying to photograph. So Lizard's Thicket, Belk, and a couple of public parks acquired a butterfly...and I promise to get photos of the next releases.

Warning: butterflies ahead! I released a few butterflies early since I was out of town for the 4th of July, and I want my first 100 butterflies to be released in my own town. This one landed in a shopping cart at Target this morning. Fly free, little one!

Columbia's Main Street is decorated with butterflies today! I left one outside of a yoga studio, and one next to the entrance of a very talented florist shop, Something Special.

Two others appeared at Trader Joe's - one in the floral area and one on a shopping cart. As I was leaving, I watched a couple of people examining the package on the shopping cart with some degree of confusion. Many people, it seems, don't know what to make of abandoned art! By the time I am finished, maybe the concept will be more well known in my city.
