My Tessa has been having a particularly difficult time lately, reprocessing the death of her cousin, Lucy. The other day she told me she wants to go up to heaven, get Lucy and bring her back.

One day late in June we came back home from being somewhere I don't recall. I noticed on a flower in the window box one of the largest, most beautiful dragonflies I'd ever seen. I assigned Doug the duty of keeping an eye on it while I ran in the house to fetch my camera. To my relief, the creature remained in place during my absence. I started taking pictures, and got some pretty nice ones, I thought. But then I realized there was no movement at all from the lovely dragonfly. I hoped he was sleeping even though I knew that not to be the case.
