To the bird I saw chasing a moth through the air this morning:
Dude! You gave up just a moment too soon. Seriously? There is no way that moth could have eluded you much longer. You were right there. Keep chasing, bird.
To the moth I saw flying for its life away from the bird chasing it this morning:
Wow! Amazing you didn't give up. You kept flying and darting around, without much reason for hope, but determined to create reason for hope. You made it! You lived to fight another day.
