Personal memory by Diane Porcella

2013Natick, MA, USA

Our backyard in Natick, Massachusetts was not big, but we were small, so it was massive. on most summer nites we chased fireflies. i was home for a big family celebration this summer and wanted to share a firefly catch and release with my little great nephew. he was due to arrive in a few days' time, so i found a mason jar for some practice. 5 summer nites but only 3 firefly sitings....sad. but, lucky us, the little guy's bright delight in feeding the morning birds made us forget the evening's faint flickerings. "We are all worms, but I do believe that I am a glow-worm." Winston Churchill
