moth in the raita
shakes the yogurt from his wings
we still eat outside
There is all the worry about co-existing with wild creatures in our decreasingly wild world --
we've stolen their habitat, they get into our garbage.
But sometimes it's less complicated than that.
It can be lovely, surprising, funny.
There was a grackle in the Whole Foods today and I assure you, he was not panicked.
He was, in fact, totally satisfied.
And then, tonight, eating Indian food with friends, we had this run-in with a moth.
It was momentary.
Kind of funny.
And then it was over, the moth flying toward its next pretty light.
And we, moving onto a delicious nutty naan.
