reasons i love dc: fireflies

fireflies are my all time favorite summer evening phenomenon.
i love watching them blink to life for the briefest of moments
and then go out, only to blink on again in a totally different place
a few moments later.

i drove up to my bishop's home this evening and followed a trail of fireflies.
he and his family live near the national arboretum, so as i drove by
there were tons of fireflies flicking on and off all across the road.

i also love watching them in my backyard.
i hope that some fireflies will follow me to my new house.

i wish i could figure out how to photograph them.

in the meantime i'll leave with these two beautiful firefly scenes.
