Sitting here relaxing from things (all right, with a beer!) when suddenly got startled by a huge black moth flying silently in circles around the room.
Have no idea where it came from, as all the windows were closed. It wouldn’t alight so I could see it properly, but it was a beautiful creature, and so silent. Must have been some two inches across. I watched it intently, especially when it kept flying briefly around my head. I wondered if it was aware of myself; it almost seemed to be. Suddenly it flew into the Chinese lantern lamp-shade so I immediately switched this off to stop it burning itself on the bulb. It was too beautiful to die in that way. It immediately settled somewhere inside, and I had to find the table lamp to get some light. It stayed in there for about half an hour until it finally found its way out and started flying round the room once more. Then it settle on top of some books. I walked over slowly to try and get a proper look at it, but it had gone. I presumed it had gone behind the books against the wall. I didn’t start moving the books in case it got injured, but at least I know where it is for the moment and its safe. I might start slowly move the books tomorrow, after having open the window, and hopefully it will fly out. I suppose they do fly in the daytime even if they are nocturnal.
Got two sandwiches from the store a little earlier. Been reduced from £2. 30 each to 50P. They were huge and I thought I could afford that considering I spend much more on wine and beer. Still got half of one left, . which is more than I can say for the beer!
Think I said, I’ve finished my written article for America. Well I since heard from the lady and she seems pleased with it – at least, she didn’t suggest any changes. Problem is, I’m such a good writer, I rarely have to make any! And if that sounds conceited, its because it is! (Well, at least I’m honest)
No. I’m not saying more about the article at the moment for obvious reasons. But I’ll let you all know when its been published. It’ll also be on line as well as being in newspaper/magazine format. So I’ll probably put a link up on here, but just have to confirm permission first.
Well, that’s about it for now. Having a short break, so just thought I could do another Blog.
