This story is for all bloggers who expose themselves. But it is especially for Robin who is never afraid to be herself and to show her vulnerabilities whether these are her migraine headaches or character flaws. It is refreshing to see such truth and humility when most of us - self included - are so wrapped up in trying to give the impression that we are in control. But here we have a woman with dreams others don't dare make for fear that they'll fail. Robin as I said is fearless. She reminds me of the moth in this story...
There once was a Moth that fell in love with a Star.
All his friends and relatives mocked him, told him he was being unrealistic and urged him to focus his efforts on some local goal: a streetlamp, a porchlight, a candle or a lantern. Even a chandelier, if he must.
But our Moth remaned true to his Star and would not give up.
So while all his pals, parents, sisters, brothers, cousins and aunts soon burned themselves around the local, ready-made luminaries and wound up as charred bits of ash on sidewalks and porches around town our Moth enjoyed a long and healthy life in endless pursuit of his unbounded Star.
