"Wild Blue" (野蓝)

BLURB
It’s a blue-butterfly day, and the sky is such because particles in Earth’s atmosphere scatter sunlight in all directions. In 1871, Lord Rayleigh published a paper explaining this phenomenon in great detail. The optical phenomenon known as Rayleigh Scattering, refers to the dispersing of electromagnetic radiation, such as light, by particles of a smaller wavelength. Out of all the colors, blue light travels as the smallest waves and results in that wild blue presented on the skies each day. Join the dance of the one-day butterflies, the mythological nymphs, enchanting triplets twirling in the blue heavens. The word for butterfly in formal Greek is “psyche”, as it’s believed to be the soul of the dead. It’s also the name of a mortal woman who was released from death by Zeus and granted immortality. Psyche’s mythological image in ancient art is portrayed with grand butterfly wings. Freed from death, the body of the soul flutters joyously into the forever blue.
