When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much.  Try to have a nice  family life, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited  life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it… Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.

Mystery Bugs

I was walking through the woods in the morning and thought I saw what might have been a path off the trail, so I took it. I had to climb over a rather large fallen tree with mushrooms and bracket fungi growing all over it. Then, further along the overgrown path I ran into another, smaller tree with branches that had recently fallen over the path. As I was grabbing the branches to climb over, I found these little guys. I’ve been trying to identify them (mainly by looking through moth indexes and a few fly ones too) to no avail. I think they’re super cool because of their bright coloration and big red eyes as well as the fact that the ends of their wings are translucent. They’re pretty tiny, as you can see in the picture with my index finger in it. There were maybe 12 or 15 of them all on this one little branch, and they didn’t fly away when I was messing with branch to get the pictures.

They kind of look like little unicorns or narwhals with their little horns.   

If anyone knows what they are let me know!

To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world. You are surrounded by adventure. You have no idea of what is in store for you, but you will, if you are wise and know the art of travel, let yourself go on the stream of the unknown and accept whatever comes in the spirit in which the gods may offer it. For this reason your customary thoughts, all except the rarest of your friends, even most of your luggage - everything, in fact, which belongs to your everyday life, is merely a hindrance. The tourist travels in his own atmosphere like a snail in his shell and stands, as it were, on his own perambulating doorstep to look at the continents of the world. But if you discard all this, and sally forth with a leisurely and blank mind, there is no knowing what may happen to you.

Precisely what I desire.
