When I was a boy growing up in the Santa Clara Valley, now more familiarly known as ‘Silicon Valley,’ I loved to chase butterflies. My grandmother bought me a picture book about butterflies and I recognized some of them from those I saw flying around my neighborhood. We had swallowtails, monarchs and painted ladies, among those I recall.
Maybe a morning glory, my memory is a bit dim that far back in the distant past, so long ago that orchards covered the valley and nobody on the block could have told you what a transistor was.
I loved the beautiful butterflies in my book, but soon realized I would never see some of the most spectacular butterflies simply because they were from far away parts of the world.
