One of the most beautiful things I have ever seen is the bio-luminescence of plankton in water. I lived in Florida as a newly married young woman, and when I was pregnant with my first child I had a difficult time sleeping. The closer i got to the actual birth, the more difficult it was for me to rest and sleep.
I began getting up in the middle of the night and walking outside along the shores of the lake behind our apartment complex. We lived on the shores of Lake Suzanne in Orlando and while it wasn’t the safest place to wander at night (alligators were abundant there) I’d walk by the shoreline to relax.
On a few late summer nights the lake would glow a fantastic blue-green in places…the color and light moving from place to place near the shore.
Years later I found out it was plankton that made the light….at the time I only thought of fairies.
