Deeper Meaning

The small-framed, wiry young man stands just inside the booth staring at the shelves for a long time, just staring. He seems stunned, almost, until he finally looks at me very seriously and asks, “Can you please show the moths that you have?”

After I show him some very colorful specimens that Katie has used in her sculptures, he explains, “I have a tattoo of a moth. ‘Cause they’re always trying to find the light."
