    I thought about the little owl’s point of view when creating this. “Why is Teresa focusing on a stupid moth when I am right here, sitting in this tree? Don’t I matter? Does no one see me?” (“Frog Applause”, May 20, 2024)

    I am prepared to assume that the facts of the matter are as presented. That is such an arcane and specific assertion that I won’t bother to look it up. Also [mostly], it’s because I’m lazy at heart. So thanks for the momentary addition to my store of knowledge.

    …the tree…

    …the Ent wife…

    …whom does not get paid to do house work …or to make breathable air…

    …is one with the world…

    …in fact …

    …is the world…

    …thus part of something even greater…

    …the Ent wife does not value money…

    …all belongs …

    …and to chase what one already has…

    …is like a dog chasing its tail…

    …the owl is not born wise…

    …and the more it knows …

    …the more it realizes…

    …the less it knows…

    …wood…says the Ent wife…

    …is more valuable dead than alive…

    …but our souls can not die…

    …or…whisper in grass…

    …don’t tell the trees…

    …the trees don’t need to know….

    That moth of course appears in gardens Latex at Nitrile. It’s protective adaptation deters predators allergic to latex.

    There is a teacher, colleague, friend or kindred soul in the background. It is one who has given up seeking new areas and settled into a single area of study. And seems to have lost much of its humanity in the process.

    Well, obviously she’s the walking Tree of Knowledge. And she gave the scoop to our Teresa!

    The owl has decided a tree with legs is a great way to scout more territory for the tasty prey.

    Nothing’s the same after the metamorphosis.

    Apparently the owl wanted to talk metaphysics, not entomological trivia.

    I like owls, and owls like a tasty treat that is the moth.
