back to bats and lightning bugs

tonight i sat outside on my deck and watched a bat circle around for about 15 minutes while lightning bugs lit up the trees.  i haven’t done that since i was about 15.   early this morning on our walk, ivan and i came face to face with a deer right in the middle of the road. 

i moved from the city.  now that i wrote it, does that make it real?


“The search for truth is in one way hard and in another way easy, for it is evident that no one can master it fully or miss it wholly. But each adds a little to our knowledge of nature, and from all the facts assembled there arises a certain grandeur.”
