Archie (Don Marquis) once wrote of a conversation between himself and a moth who justified their desire to fly into flame, to live the passion, Archie doesn't agree with this suicidal urge but ends by commenting something along the lines of "Still, I wish there was one thing in this world I wanted so much as that moth wanted to immolate himself on the flame"

Stong poetic statement, Phil...thanks.

This is an amazing metaphor and sadly often very true. But it is the nature of the flame to burn, and it is the nature of the moth to be drawn to the flame and get burned. Hopefully however most of us will have a choice, and we will choose not to burn others and not to fly towards those that burn us.

Impressive work! I think this is something most of us can relate to in some way or other.
