Last night I attended a bonfire out in Arkwright. It was far enough outside of town to be properly dark, something I don't get to enjoy very often in this land of light pollution. Highlights included swordplay, s'mores, and several explosions.

The field across the road from my friend's place and the one surrounding the fire were full of fireflies. I haven't seen that many fireflies since... ever. Though green and not blue, the flashing lights reminded me of the phosphorescence of certain marine invertebrates that I first saw in the ocean of Southern Thailand many years ago. Magical.
