Remember several weeks ago, when I said I didn’t normally walk in the park in the evening?
So, that particular evening I was walking along, enjoying the way the trees looked different and noticing the different sounds of the park in the evening, when it happened. Fireflies began popping up all around.
My friends, fireflies are, in my opinion, the most magical part of this area. Growing up in California we didn’t have this magnificent bug, but here, what magic we have all around us. Oh, it brings me so much joy to be around fireflies.
As I was walking along, enjoying the fireflies that were beginning to light up the world around me, I realized that this particular moment was the first moment I had seen the fireflies the whole summer.
When I lived in Silver Spring, I would just have to look out my front window to see them light up the world around me, but now that I’m in DC and there’s a bit more concrete around me, and a bit less lawn to be had, I need to walk during twilight to enjoy them. I’m usually really good at doing that during the summer, but in all honesty it just hadn’t happened yet this summer.
Sometimes the magic just happens my friends, but sometimes, sometimes we have to seek out the magic. Sometimes we have to look for it. Sometimes we have to see the world around us in new and different ways to see the magic that is waiting for us.
My dear friends, can you see a little more of the magic in your life today? Can you seek it out?
I hope you have a magical week my friends.
