Sometimes, if you create something brilliant, you create a timeless work of art that people want to see again and again. I guess this could be said of the butterfly. Its magical transformation from caterpillar to butterfly is a symbol of hope and inspiration for so many. People come from near and far to see Butterflies LIVE! all summer long. It seems to attract people like a nectar plant attracts butterflies. But today, I want to talk about another brilliant thing that I keep coming back to, a video interview of our 2009 Butterflies LIVE! butterfly wrangler, Jay Forehand. Sometimes, when you have the perfect mix of zany expression and passion, you find that interviewing a subject also becomes a magical and transformative experience. One such moment for me is when Baylen Forcier of RVA Mag interviewed Jay.
