We went to the woods, searching for Time...
The Dragonfly told us she had spent more than a year moulting underwater as a nymph; couple of days to surface; an hour to stretch and strengthen her wings for her first flight... finally, it was only a matter of seconds to dart over water (planting eggs) to keep her next generation in check.
It takes a caterpillar no more than 2 weeks to transform into a butterfly. But today, The Butterfly is worried sick that The Caterpillar may not even survive a day on the tourist track :(
>> Dear adventurers, please watch your steps & cherish nature!
The Cicada Ensemble kept us company as we sat by the waterfall, watching rays from the sun disappear amongst the leaves...... Cicadas spent 3-17 years molting underground and after metamorphosis, they spend the rest of their time up in the trees doing the wild thing. Swing my swing high~
Late at night along the stream, stars and fireflies started revealing themselves in the thick velvet darkness. Surreal indeed! Fireflies take a month to hatch from eggs to become gloworms and turn into sparks of the night...... Despite having just that few days to live, they shine their fullest.
We spent more than 30 years growing up, constantly changing with our surroundings with countless uncertainties ahead...... but tonight concluded with one clarity, we found Time.
