In case you're wondering, Journal 1 reads: Is there anything so beautiful as a bunch of fireflies flashing away on a summers night? I have so many memories of summer nights spent running through the grass, my flip flops slapping, trying to catch those elusive little creatures. We’d sneak up on them resting in the grass and cup them gently in our hands. We’d carefully transfer them to an old mason jar requisitioned from my grandmother’s kitchen for the purpose and stuffed with bits of grass, leaves and twigs to make the fireflies more at home. But we quickly learned that beauty is not easily contained - if you keep it caged up it dies. And so, at the end of every night, we left our mason jars open so that the fireflies could slip quietly out and we could catch them all over again the next night.
Journal 2 reads: One summer when I was a teenager, there was a massive meteor shower. A friend and I brought sleeping bags to my backyard and spent the entire night laying on our backs and watching the “stars” fall from the sky. After awhile we ran out of things to wish for and just laid there quietly watching. We were young, but at that moment we had more wisdom than we’d earned and we felt just how tiny we were in relation to the universe.
Journal 3 reads: When we were young, we were always surrounded by cousins and friends and cousins of friends. On weekends in the summer, the adults would throw parties and us kids would run around in packs, instinctively avoiding the adults lest they recall we should have been in bed hours ago. Our favorite game was one we called flashlight tag. Whoever was “IT” would be given a flashlight. We’d all scatter, and then the goal was to avoid the beam of the flashlight for as long as possible. If you were caught in the spotlight, you were out!
