Oh my gosh the dragonflies came out today. So many good memories of dragonflies. I remember when my daughter was still a child - we sat on the beach for a whole day watching them emerge and climb up the boathouse wall.

Their wings drying in the wind.
The urge to help them along - but leaving them alone.
The colors - the wonderful, wonderful, beautiful colors.
Ever since that day my daughter and I have a special bond with dragonflies - and I have painted many of them. You can see them on my website: www.christinealfery.com.
Dragonflies are filled with hope - and for me love - and new birth. They just make me feel good inside - and they are now 1000's of them flying around in my backyard.
Such a glorious moment - time to pause.
