Well, time is the great equalizer and educator, except knowledge is often accrued slowly until the point its only value is to be given for advice... and who has ever wanted to take advice? Days passed routinely in the comfortable cottage until one morning the old man's bed was already empty. The butterfly waited, but he did not return. Its cage door opened by repeating the same method as before. The delicate creature took flight passing over the window sill to dance on the gentle breeze.

At sunset, the butterfly looked down at a woman walking on a footpath. She held out her hands and the white butterfly landed in them. As they entered a humble cottage the woman talked to the beautiful butterfly about what happened during the day and what they would do tomorrow.
