Writer's Block: A sight for sore eyes  
What is the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?


At Folk Fest some years ago, the mosquitoes were very bad. There was supposed to have been dragonflies introduced into the park before the festival, but for some reason they hadn't been. After a long night of running around, dancing and having a great time on a warm summer night, as the sun was coming up, I came across the road to the road into camp and saw a semi trailer. I hung around a little to see why it was there. After a few moments, the workers came and opened the back of the semi. I saw thousands of dragonflies come pouring out, flying in glittering clouds over the red and orange of that gorgeous sunrise, their wings shimmering. It was amazing. They were everywhere that day, eating all the horrible mosquitoes, but nothing will ever match that scene of seeing so many of them in the sunrise.
