Thought of the Day 2010 #150 - Darkness Falls

They come at night, mostly.

I was sitting out back in a lawn chair amongst tall weeds and was quite certain that the nocturnal bugs were on the move. I kept my arms and legs moving, and swayed my body back and forth. If you didn't know me, you would have assumed I was a disturbed autistic. Luckily, I didn't feel anything crawl on me, but I looked to my right, and on a white plastic lawn chair, there clearly were critters quickly moving across the seat. I love summer evenings! I really do. There is something magical about the seemingly endless darkening blue sky. The bugs just temper the beauty so that it is not overwhelming.
