The Twenty-Plume Moth, one of the few micromoths to have a common name at all, is an astonishingly beautiful insect, often overlooked because it is about the size of a child’s little fingernail, but even the most cursory examination under a hand lens will reveal that its wings are divided into twenty-four, not twenty plumes.
The moths of London are an often overlooked glory of the city's natural history. And the names they go by are almost as fascinating as the creatures themselves.

When I was old and young
And old, then young again
I always need to return to
SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK
Just to hear and listen
To their voices in
ELLA's SONG

EFFRONTERY
Where does it stem
How does this contempt
Take root

Where is the respect
For earth
And our neighbourhood

If not for incivility
Flamboyant is otherwise
A picturesque road

And the oldest of them all is the ETRUSCAN GOLD BOOK with an estimated age of 2,673 years, and as for me, I don't know one single word written in there

 
Writing and literature are thought to have been first developed between the 7th and 4th millenium BC. Since the dawn of writing an incredible array of different materials have been used for recording text, including clay, silk, pottery, papyrus, even coffins – so the question of the oldest surviving book depends very much on how you classify one.

As for me I will just imagine that I'm walking through this misty lane. I need to be in town and I'm not much into taxi rides, besides it will do me good if my limbs and feet can get me there

one has to see the eyes and heart of a child, form a mental picture to feel what this moment is like, to be able to grasp the soul of a child you need to go back there. With the events of the night and this morning's news its so difficult and my only prayer for unmerited favour right now, God's Grace
