Dragonflies

Personal Accounts

Initially I made a personal account section of this webpage to share other people's accounts since I had none of my own. Little did I know that this would change in a very convincing way. It has been a summer of the dragonfly for me. This began in part by reconnecting with a long lost cousin. She shared with me her personal stories of dragonflies and their interactions with her. From there my interest grew. Since my early awakening of rediscovering dragonflies I have seen them everywhere. I see them at home, at the homes of friends and family, and of course on my hikes. I see them in the parks, out in nature, and I even notice them while driving in my car, even while cruising along on the highway. When I'm not seeing dragonflies in the flesh I also see them in the manmade world as symbols in art. They are everywhere and will be seen if one takes the time to notice them.
