165. Bejeweled

I love dragonflies.  They are just so cool and prehistoric looking.  Plus, they always remind me of my mother.

My mother has always been very girly and prim.  My uncle likes to say that she "grew up on a farm but nobody bothered to tell her."  Being outside is just not her thing.

BUT when I was a kid, she did take us to swim at various pools.  While there, she would stick her dainty finger out for the dragonflies to land on -- and they did.  They would sit there together as if they knew they could trust one another.  My sister and I were always amazed.
