In the woods with fireflies

“What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.”
Crowfoot quotes

    Man. Once, a gazillion years ago, I was sitting on my front porch in Dallas arguing with my first wife. She was twenty. The sun was down and she was sitting on the porch rail with her back to the yard and as we gently fought the fireflies came out and formed a kind of back drop halo around her but I was really pissed and kept on being a dick but finally, I said come sit next to me so we are looking in the same direction…and then she saw the gazillion fireflies and said “Holy Shit! What are those?”

    How can a person live twenty years without knowing about firefles? She was a Valley Girl (totally) and I guess they don’t have them there…but still…

    Ultimately, we ended up not looking in the same direction once and for all, and that makes me sad. Fireflies…

      Apparently like the bee lightning bugs have been disappearing and researchers don’t quite know why. They believe that’s it’s most likely from light pollution,pesticides and development. I guess since thy use a sequence of blinks to communicate that it makes for some major miscommunication and confusion in a city or suburb settings which I guess will only continue as time passes.

    Looks really smart. Those look like old mason jars for preserving…is that what you used? Mark.

      Thanks Mark. They are actually apple juice bottles “Martinelli’s” they were such a wonderful shape I knew I wanted to do something other than taking them to be recycled , so fireflies and mason jars or in this case (apple juice bottles) and hot summer nights spent in the woods seemed to make sense.

    Well done. My son tends to like apple juice boxes…but, I guess that wouldn’t have quite the same effect. Superb job, Tohner.

Finished.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

I like to use an oil and wax combo they sell for butcher blocks it's obviously non toxic, I can get a good finish on it, repels water well, provides a good grip not too slippy and I can rub a coat on quickly from time to time.#peasantknife #maplehandle#butcherblockconditioner #knifemaker#useyourshit#hotelcapitan Salmon Jerky on a rainy cool Sunday morning.
