they're going away

i have thoroughly enjoyed the cicadas. i think the flying saucer sounds that rev up every morning have been totally cool. our friend elizabeth says, "they come out in a frenzy of sex and death, and it just makes me feel that everything's ok with the world".

but now, it's mostly just death and dying. i'm sad they're going.

Their brief sojourn topside reminds me of a quote from Blade Runner

"The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long - and you have burned so very, very brightly, Roy. "

Tyrell to Roy Batty, the replicant Tyrell created.
