I’m blogging from the kitchen counter.
It seems that my best stuff always comes to me here; call it hallowed ground.
Billy Joel – Bill I’ve heard he wants to go by nowadays…much too advanced in years to be a Billy anymore - is keeping me company as he reminds me of days gone by.
From the open kitchen window, sunlight lances in from the afternoon sun, glittering in the water left behind in the sink from a few dirty dishes. It sparkles in a circular pattern on the ceiling, wavering slightly; around the kitchen, cast from the golf ball-sized crystal upon the sill, dozens of small rainbows cover the walls. I stare at a few of these multicolored strips and remember to going to my friend, Jess’s house, and the crystal his mom had in their living room window casting a thousand baby rainbows around the room. As a young boy I’d try to capture them, wanting to put them into my pocket and save them.
I’d never been successful.
As I type away on my laptop I happened to glance at my shoulder and noticed a multicolored caterpillar of light nuzzled on my shoulder.
I smiled, thinking of the crystals hanging in my room as a boy; the million arcs of color and light they cast day after day through the times of my adolescence and young adulthood.
Billy Joel serenades on…
and the silent fireflies of yesteryear surround me.
