On September 24, 1994, exactly two decades ago today, I experienced — and 24 other women witnessed — a most unbelievable encounter: a five-legged butterfly landed on my arm at a Christian women's retreat, and, as 24 women watched, gradually traversed both of my gruesomely mutilated and hideously disfigured wrists, which, seven days prior, I had carved a dozen deep, scabbed-over — some even stitch-worthy – self-inflicted X-marks, six on each forearm. For forty-four (44!) minutes, that little butterfly literally “kissed” each disgusting, shameful, crusty scab, captivating us all in this speech-defying, miracle-acknowledging awe of beauty in the face of such aberrant ugliness. I scratched out a poem, the last stanza reading: "I named him ‘Hope’ before he flew To join the other of his kind; He'd gone, but in my heart I knew He'd sought to leave his name behind."
