Notes from the Waxhaws

Voices in the night

Fireflies are out in full force this evening…winking in and out of existence on this last day of May.  The moon is hanging high…and silently… in the clear, darkening sky. It’s Summer’s eve again…another year gone by. Last night I awoke to coyotes howling and baying in the moonlight…a very lonely and eerie sound that made my skin tingle. I’ve never seen them…but I know they’re out there. I’m strangely comforted by their presence…and I also know that Belle is quietly…and alertly…listening to these plaintive…and in some way vaguely familiar… voices in the night.
