The Mayfly: An Introduction

With a life-span between 30 minutes and one day, I've long considered the mayfly as a wonderful symbol of humanity.  Geologically speaking, our 70-year life spans are but blinks of an eye.  And just like the mayfly, we, too, seem to revolve our existence around reproduction, rest, and an anticipation of death.

Plus... as I was born on May Day, it just seems to fit.

Being 38, I figure my internal clock is reading 3:15 PM.  

15 hours down.  9 hours to go.

With memories to spare...
