I arrive into my driveway, and an enormous Pandora Sphinx Moth greets me. The moth–as big as my own hand–sits with authority as if sent to deliver a message. We think, at first, a leaf attached itself to our door. But then we see clearly.
Watch carefully. Things are not what they seem.

When you have a Pandora Sphinx Moth welcoming you home, you feel as if you’re in another land with enchanted creatures. Anything can happen here. Look again, and you’ll see wonderful things.
I lean in and observe the velvety wing. What a strange and curious world this is! Even when I’m inside my house (folding laundry, cleaning dishes), I know the moth guards my door. Just remembering that such a beautiful and mysterious insect exists somehow brings delight and wonder to the whole morning. Living with flair means taking some time to observe the strangely beautiful.
