Conducting Fireflies

1 Conducting The Fireflies

When I was a child, I spent countless summer evenings conducting fireflies. No, they aren’t actually musical, but if you watch them long enough you will begin to notice a rhythm to their movements: slow and intermittent at twilight, building to a crescendo as twilight deepens. As darkness descends, it is nearly impossible not to join them in their dance of mystical, musical whimsy.

I remember once catching them and putting them in a jar with holes punched in the top, hoping to experience their magic at any time of day. But in the morning, they were dim, sluggish and dark. Running outside, I opened the lid and released them, watching them slowly wander around the ground momentarily before taking flight – little jewels of black and red against the sunny sky.

I never captured fireflies again. Their beauty and majesty can only be appreciated when they flicker among the stars, creating a masterpiece that diminishes in captivity.

1 And Fireflies Alight The Night

Pose Fair 2015, a Hottie Cooterati event, opens at noon on April 11. It runs until the 25th, so be sure to stop in to find the latest creations by the best posemakers on the grid. Today I am featuring Pose Fair Exclusives from Dream Print Poses. The poses in my photos are from her Blogging collection and will not be sold after the event ends. I will update my post with the SLurl to the event once it is officially open. (Now open!)

Also new is the Aussie Bush Hat I am sporting, from JfL Hats. With Anzac Day coming up on April 25th, it is timely as well as fashionable. Do stop by to say G’day to John and take home this Aussie classic for yourself.

    When I saw that hat, I thought it had an Australian look though not quite an Akubra. Love the relaxed 2nd pose. And YES, as Starr said, your blog is always an entertaining read.

      John is a great designer and I was so excited to see he did an Aussie hat so close to Anzac Day! xoxo

Talk to me! (please? )
