Fireflies are probably the most precious memory I have as a child. Sitting, waiting in my great aunt's yard at dusk in Alvarado, Texas to spot the first magical flash, watching them, chasing them. David and I saw Synchronous Fireflies at a lake in Kansas many years ago. I miss fireflies! I have not seen one in more than 18 years and that is too long. I am sad for my son, who never had that moment of seeing them appear in the dark. Fireflies are disappearing all over the world, how you can help at Firefly.org, what a great place. Maybe, that should be a summer trip ... in search of fireflies!
I wanted to do something like this about 15 years ago! I want one!!! This is more what mine looked like (in my head on and on paper) ...
A very sweet piece about remembering the magic of fireflies by Julia at bioluminescence.
