We recently purchased an IPad 2, and have been extremely pleased with its versatility and capabilities. Because our electricity was taken out by the morning storm, I took the IPad onto our deck in the early evening light and did my journaling with the help of batteries. Hours passed, the sunlight faded, and the glow of the IPad started causing a handful of moths to visit. Mid-word I’d have a fluttering wing flop on the screen or a clumsy flight pattern hit my face. It was rather comical and I pretended my writing was so fabulous even the insects had to read it.
When the hum of the air conditioner started, I knew my magical time with the moths was ending. My husband ventured inside and switched on the house lights. The gift of electricity had been restored. Somewhat sadly I gathered my papers and IPad and left the night air. The comforts of home were once again intact, yet the warm summer night and the dance of the moths lingered on my skin. It was the best part of my day.
