We are bearing witness to an insect in the twilight of her life.
She spends her days wandering the garden, lost in her memories, but also reveling in
the details of her environment, which are so rich and precious to her now.
She makes a point of visiting friends with regularity. She feels it is important that they know how much they have meant to her...
She is not shy, and expresses her affection freely.
Although she is old now and a little slow, she still enjoys the handcrafts her grandmother taught her when she was just a pupa.
And of course sleep and the fascinating dreams that accompany it offer respite when the body grows weary of activity.
