The Moths Are Loose!


I opened my wallet and paid to upgrade this site so there’ll be no more ads – and I can customize to a greater extent.  I hope you like the changes so far.

A quick post today – as I’ve set my wallet moths free, moths are on my mind.

The following is an extract from a poem ‘Two Years Later’ that was written by William Butler Yeats.  It was written about a century ago yet seems amazingly relevant today:

Has no one said those daring

Kind eyes should be more learn’d?

Or warned you how despairing

The moths are when they are burned?

I could have warned you, but you are young,

So we speak a different tongue.

(Sorry about the formatting – WordPress is challenging!)

I leave you today with a link to a beautiful painting of a Bogong Moth by Australian artist Danielle Burford.
