I’m taking a two week hiatus to work on some fresh writing ideas and give my site a much needed facelift. I’ll still be posting quotes this morning, and a Game of Thrones tribute this Sunday, but otherwise will be taking a bit of a blogging break.
I’m calling it a luna moth hiatus because luna moths only live for a week. They emerge from a chrysalis, lay eggs, float around beautifully for a week, and then die. They don’t even have mouths to eat. This lifespan makes them rare to spot, even though they are fairly common. It also makes them a symbol of renewal and rebirth.
Since I’m taking two weeks off I leave you with the two luna moths that I’ve been lucky to spot. The bottom one is the luna moth I spotted outside my husband and I’s apartment the day we moved to North Carolina. I spotted the one above outside our new apartment a week after we moved in.
In the meantime, I’ve also entered in another little infinite haiku contest, and would greatly appreciate you voting for me here.
