With the onset of the rainy season, the fireflies come out in droves just after dusk for an hour or two and light up our black skies. Tonight, I took Frankie out for a short walk and there were hundreds of them twinkling around us. Frankie seemed a little confused: first she barked at them, then pounced. One landed on her nose. Cross-eyed and ears pricked, she froze not quite sure what to do next. I couldn't help but chuckle.
I'm not sure why, but standing amidst these lightning bugs makes me feel like a child. There's a wondrous, curious and magical feeling in the air... like witnessing Tinkerbell and all her relatives at some incredible party. I'm not entirely sure, but I think I might've shared this same observation in a post a year ago. If so, at least I'm consistent, eh. All I can say is they are spectacularly beautiful and fill me with awe and inspiration! Something everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. Truly sublime.
