11:17 PM: glow worm
during a break in the rain tonight sven & i walked to powell butte and saw something glowing under a tree: two little dots of light as clear as an led flashlight or a firefly, but it wasn't moving. sven picked it up and carried it to where there was some light, where we discovered it was a bug with bioluminescent dots on its tail! it looked like a millipede with fewer legs. i didn't know we had bioluminescent bugs in oregon!
