We had some serious conversations about computers, phones, social media, and banking systems and how everything keeps changing, mostly needlessly changing looks though - and asking for logins - endlessly :)The parrot that my parents befriended some time ago returned. This time they had a chance to take pictures much closer. Mom found some Caddisflies! And we talked a lot about different types of cases that they build and how cool the whole transformation process is. And that at the fly stage of their cycle, they live only a day or so.
One of my Dad's favorite expressions is "For a moth who lives only one day the weather is quite important".
And through all of these everyday conversations about weather, living arrangements, meals, walks, caddisflies, logins, and such - always goes - how terrible the war is.
