North Carolina

"Do you see that? That eye shining?"

I asked him as we were sitting in the dark on a decaying picnic table. He stands up looking beyond puzzled and starts chuckling.

"You mean that lightning bug?"

Glad darkness shadowed my face, I felt myself blush.

It never occured to me that they have fire flies in NC.

"I've never saw one before."

The weather was smothering. It was all I could do to understand the dialect.

For the first time in my life I dropped everything and hopped on a plane and on I went.

Blurs of memories replaying from the 2 weeks I spent there, computerless, without a car. It was interesting.....

I will go back.
