Fireflies

Have you ever stood up quickly and seen stars, like little flashes of light before your eyes? I was outside on the phone at dusk and thought I was getting dizzy. Fiery streaks of light were randomly streaking across the darkening yard.
Then it dawned on me- Fire Flies!! To all of you who have lived in places aside from barren Tucson, this probably sounds silly, but I was captivated. It's like a mini-fire works display! I love living here. It was actually chilly last night. I'm sure I'll be eating my words in 6 months when I'm trudging knee-deep through snow to get to the car, but for now I am thoroughly enjoying every moment.

Isn't it fun living in a new place and discovering for the first time what everyone else around you grew up with? That's how MA has been for us. I still haven't seen fireflies - lucky!
