yes, the song. the one that's crazy overplayed but I still love for reasons unknown.

"you would not believe your eyes if ten million fireflies lit up the world as I fell asleep."

You're right, you wouldn't--unless you happen to be out among the corn and soybean fields in mid-summer, and then you'd find that there really ARE ten million fireflies lighting up the world with their teardrop shaped glitter. And you might just stand and stare...unless you're driving, in which case you might slow down to stare and the people behind you will be very annoyed until they too stop watching you and glance to the side of the road to see just how very cool that is.

Whatever, that's not dangerous--you'd be driving very slow. it's fine.

Anyway, it's super cool--this is one of my favorite times of year, because whenever you're out at dusk there's just glitter hovering over every grassy or soybeany or corny patch of ground. You can't get a picture of this, no matter how hard you try--you just have to experience it as fully as possible and then hope that experience will tide you over 'til next summer.

Tonight I also saw a hundred frogs hopping across the road, and a BEAUTIFUL sunset, and a bat! I hope the bat did not eat one of the fun and flighty lightning bugs... :-)
