Bo nie widzę Twych kolorów i nie widzę Ciebie Motylku, romantyczne mam te słowa dla Ciebie Ale Ty lecisz gdzieś indziej Szukam Cię po Warszawie, na ulicach i w maleńkich kącikach Może jesteś na drzewie czereśni Może jesteś na drzewie czarnego bzu Wróć do Twego kraju i będę Twym na zawsze Motylku, gdzie Ty teraz lecisz? Bo nie widzę Twych kolorów i nie widzę CiebieLyrics translation Butterfly, Where Are you going now? Because I can’t see your colors and I can’t see you Butterfly, I have these words for you. But you’re going somewhere else. I’m looking for you around Warsaw, in the streets and in tiny corners. Maybe you’re on a cherry tree Maybe you’re on the elderberry tree Return to your country and I will be yours forever Butterfly, Where Are you going now?

You must tell the bees There is an old saying that beekeepers know “ Deaths, births marriages and news from overseas you must tell the bees.” I should have known when the bear started visiting that it was only a matter of time. Yes The bear kept coming back and hard as we tried, he eventually won. Life is like that too, there comes a time when life’s circle comes to an end. For the last few years my mother Stephanie Wojdyla Palieri walked that balance of life and death. My sister Tina did everything possible to keep her going and did so for many years. Tina scarified everything for our mom. She was there through it all . Yesterday she had to let her go. When I got the call from my brother David he said mom is leaving us . My mind flashed back to last November when we were last together and that happy day. Tina had put together a grand party while I was Florida. She made it an early Thanksgiving, with a full meal , filled with laughter, storytelling and music. Tina made sure that my mom was dressed nicely looking her best. Mom was having fun as she sat with her family. At 88 she was having good and bad days this was a very good one. I knew this was probably the last time I would see her. I wanted to keep this vision of her in my mind. Yesterday after a long day at the local Fall Festival, I got an message from my wife Marianna who is visiting her sister in California, that told me she just heard from my brother that my mother had passed away and she also heard that the bee hive that we tried to save did not make it. The hive was dead. Perhaps the bear got the Queen as a hive cannot survive with out the queen bee and then she said but perhaps the queen was able to fly away and is somewhere out in nature, building a new colony. We will never know for sure but it’s a nice thought. My mom was our Queen Bee and perhaps she too flew away out in the universe and as my sister Lisa said is already up in heaven too. We will never know for sure but it’s a nice thought. Rik Palieri
