It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

If you go down to the woods tonight ...

Photographer and  physicist Kristian Cvecek took these photos of fireflies in the woods near his home in Nuremburg.

We can't see the fireflies here, they are all wearing raincoats.

Hi there - found you via Irish Gumbo when you commented on the breastfeeding article. Just added to your followers list and hope you drop by my blog to follow it too. Love your tango videoclips. The fireflies are gorgeous.
All the best, Catherine.

HHL, I am telling you, the fireflies here, as well as birds and bees are all wearing little rain coats and carrying tiny little umbrellas.

Kelly, I miss those Southern nights of cicadas making a racket and fireflies lighting up the woods. I have to find out if they have that sort of thing here, out in the countryside.

Catherine, welcome ! Thank you .. glad you like the music .. how can I live in Buenos Aires and not post Tango music sometimes at least ? :)
