    Hey There Elena,
    Cool Post, OK, when I finished highschool one of my teachers gave out to every student of her class a photocopy with a short story by Paulo Coelho. It’s a story about a moth/night butterfly that falls in love with a star and every night strives to fly higher and higher in order to reach it. Even though she never reaches the star she ends up seeing many wonderful things and leaves for a long time unlike all her relatives who ‘fell in love’ with things like street lamps and got burnt in their light. The moral of the story in the end is that even unrequited loves can give you a lot of happiness.
    I want to know from which of his books is that story from. I’ve been looking for it but nothing so far. Help…?
    Thanks
