The firefly. Or call it the lightning bug, if you like, as I did when chasing it through the summer nights of my childhood.  We collected them in jars, let them crawl up our arms, watched them flash their secret codes in the dark.

This blog is a collection of my own metaphoric fireflies, flashes of luminescence to light the dark spaces of our lives. Here, you’ll find a variety of writings on a wide range of topics: cross-cultural issues, topical events, parenting, the work world, teaching, family life, language, health care, pop culture, humor, incongruence, and a subset of pieces about cancer, popsicles and hummingbirds.

For a whimsical tune about fireflies (and insomnia), here’s a link to Adam Young’s infectious tune from 2009:  http://www.totallyfuzzy.net/ourtube/owl-city/fireflies-video_dfe2869af.html

    i’m an indie game developer and I want to use an image from this website( https://julieyamamoto.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/p6072573.jpg ) as a part of a big texture. Can I use it?
    Thank you in advance.

        Thanks for the permission. If I manage to upload the project, I’ll probably will have to fill something like resource sources and of course, I’ll mention the it there, or anywhere else, if possible.
