It's been awhile since I've visited the boards and this is the first thread I chose to read and I'm so thankful that I did. Great story Eden, thank you so much for sharing. I've been feeling a little out of sorts lately and could really use an intense experience to redirect/verify my life right now.
I have many fireflies in my yard which has a pond, trees (woods) and field that currently contains corn. On a very humid summer night there are TONS of fireflies. I can sit out back and watch them for hours...they are very magical and fascinating to watch. Something I heard that I didn't know, but didn't look it up to see if it's true either, female fireflies are only found on the ground so all those ones flying about are male.
