There is a story about a story about Vladimir Nabokov, the Russian writer who wrote Lolita, and Pale Fire. One summer Nabokov and his family were staying with some friends in Alta, Utah. While there Nabokov took the opportunity to enlarge his collection of butterflies and moths.


One evening at dusk he returned from his day’s excursion saying that during hot pursuit near Bear Gulch he had heard someone groaning pathetically down by the stream. “‘Did you stop’ His friend asked him. “‘No, I had to get the butterfly.’”


The next day the dead body of an aged prospector was discovered in what has been renamed, in Nabokov’s honor, Dead Man’s Gulch.” While people around us are dying, how often we chase butterflies!
