That story brought tears to my eyes. Im not sure why It did but thank you so much for sharing Edens.

Here in NC almost at the South Carolina Boarder there are tons, I swear I saw several hundred last time I was out in the woods. :D

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.

My outside circle is surrounded by a grove of trees on three sides and after a small bit of a mossy patch there is an area I've just let grow with whatever Mother Nature wants, along with my own Mom's sweet peas. On warm summer nights after a ritual it's just plain magical out there among the fireflies.

I thought of you, Eden's Garden, on the equinox when I was sitting there in delight.

I swear I saw different colored fireflies that night but my husband assures me they are all one color.

What a beautiful story. When I was a child, I would chase fireflies for as long as I could. One night my father came up to me and to me to be gentle with them because they were magical creature. That they disguised themselves as insects when you got close enough to see them to protect them. I remember looking at them in awe, and in a way, I believe that was one of my stepping stones to the path I am on today.

I was looking for this the other day, to revise and add to my BoS. Thought I'd lost it when my old computer died. I suppose I might was well stick around for a while, since I'm already here.

I'm just glad to know that sharing my story has been a positive experience for those who have read it.

Nice to see you, too. It's been a while, but this break was much needed.
