  • A firefly tries with all its might, in between darkness and light, to get everyone to light. To shine together. To be brilliant.

    Like the sun.


    However, it's firefly nature — to flicker. So try and try he might, between darkness and light, there can only be moments of brilliance. Syncopated glowing. Music to our eyes.


    P.S. Your light is a gift. The sun's gift to you. Her way of saying, shine together. To be brilliant. To be stars...twinkling on cue.
