Fireflies June 9, 2008

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

Saturday night, on Deb and Dan’s deck, after cocktails, greens from the garden, a cold roast, and a crisp white Portuguese Fernão Pires.

At last.

I miss lightning bugs. I think pesticides have greatly diminished their populations. We almost never see them down here in Florida anymore.

At last she writes again!

I saw my first fireflies the other evening, just after the lights went out.

Your life sounds so sophisticated. We’re lucky to have Kraft Mac and Cheese these days.

I’m amazed at how idyllic a life can seem in so little words.

4. Helen - June 9, 2008

That should probably be “so few words,” correct?

The whole comment sounds grammatically suspicious now. Let me try again:

I’m amazed at how you can make your life sound so idyllic with so few words.

Grammatically suspicious. I like it.

Our fireflies aren’t out yet. Which now suddenly worries me. We do have fewer than I remember as a kid, but we still have them here. Of course, we had a nasty long cold spring. Perhaps there is still time.

Bridgett: Don’t give up hope for fireflies!

CW: Don’t give up hope for me! I can’t seem to write lately…

CW, Helen: So few moments are like that, so it’s nice to try to notice them when they happen. Or is that so little moments? Or so less moments? Hmmmm….

Sewa: Serious bummer.

I’ve only ever seen a firefly once, in Bethesda. Those little things are magical.

8. Bridgett - June 10, 2008

Mali: that made me and my husband both say, “Huh!” Never knew they were north american buggies.

A momentous momento.
