“Like a moth to a flame”. The moth is known for its obsession with light, drifting ever closer to any lamp or candle near them. Like the moth, it is nearly impossible to imagine our society without our lights that keep us going, even in the wee hours. Inside every one of us is such a moth that yearns for the light.
