Did the Spider Come Out to Play?
Some questions are obviously more profound than others, and I do seem to ask a lot of questions of varying degrees of both importance and answerability. But as I was standing in my outdoor shower this morning I was struck by the fact that when I first get into the shower I am alone, sharing the space with no other life forms, but as my shower progresses, inevitably someone comes to keep me company. Lately that someone has been of the spider variety, and there have been at least three different spiders involved. Do they show up to play? Do they like the companionship of chatting? I'd think that the water might intimidate them or at least discourage them, but that does not seem to be the case at all. Anyway, I do enjoy the company and I think it is marvelous that I can have such an experience each and every morning. The last few mornings I've also had very talkative crows joining in the fun. I can't remember last winter well enough to know how much company I will get as the weather becomes colder, but time will tell! In any case, I chose to think that the spiders and other critters like to share my shower time with me. Have a great day!
