Troupes of Dragonflies
We are all visitors to this time, this place…. We are just passing through. Our purpose is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love, and then we return home. —Australian Aboriginal saying
While exploring the trails of Grassy Waters Preserve, we were visited by troupes of the brightest and most lovely dragonflies…. One of them followed me for a solid 5 minutes — and in my true nature, I slowed down, watching every movement for fear of hurting my bright mascot. I’m convinced that he fell in love with our similar coloring; periwinkle ranks high on my favorite-colors list, and I was head-to-toe in it. Perhaps he thought I was a Grand Poobah / Dragonfly Queen?
