Akitsushima

49-365 Ever since I was a little girl, I loved dragonflies. My mother said that they were my "soul creature." In ancient mythology, Japan was known as Akitsushima, "Land of the Dragonflies." I find this ironic since I instantly felt at home in Japan, more so even than in America. So maybe my mother is right and I was a dragonfly in a past life. :)
