Reach For the Sky and Do it NOW

Why You Have Come Here

If you have arrived here seeking sanctity or blessing, then you will have to provide your own cloak and dagger. I only confess to the daily struggle to treat the world with the respect it has earned in my estimation. We all look to the sky and wonder. I feel the whisper of the ages calling and know not what flutter or ripple calls true. My approach is to touch your life in only the manner in which you prefer. As we all must suffer at some time, then I feel we all deserve, also, the right to laugh. My smile is my weapon, and at times my words also I use to defend.

Cecropia Moth

We had the great fortune today at singing school to find a giant moth who's wingspan I estimate at 6 inches. It was attached to the old-fashioned screen outside the window of the original building. After looking it up in my Arkansas moth book, I believe that it is a cecropia moth. The name is pronounced see-CROW-pee-ah. It is the largest moth in the US. Host plants for the larva would include apple, box elder, lilac, sassafras and willows, and maples. All of which are located around the building and the creek.
