    At school earlier, there was a tiny spider on

    the floor and I was the only one to notice it. Everyone was so close to it and people kept neatly treading on it, and I just felt awful. I wanted to move it but I couldn't just bend down and crawl around in a crowd of people, I would have tripped people up and got in the way. I...

    Last night, I had a splendid time. I sat on the back porch, drinking a couple of beers and listening to some Grateful Dead. I was wearing nothing but my glasses. It was lightly raining but it's summer so I sat in the rain. Felt wonderful. Then I noticed a spider working on a new...

    Itsy Bitsy Spider

     Once when I was in high school I had just left a class and was heading to my next class. I turned the corner and there was a circle of a bunch of kids but I couldn't see what they were circling. I kept hearing people yell "Kill it! Stomp it!" I ran over and pushed...

    Spiders Are Great Teachers.

    I spent a lot of time this summer watching the garden spiders (filmed them quite a bit, too). At one point, my roommate and I counted 18 webs in one relatively small corner of her garden. There were quite a few that stayed in one spot for months, and I was able to watch them grow...

    Today in class someone spotted a small spider

    and didn't even inspect it at all before smooshing it. I panicked tried to stop him but he proceeded and my whole bench gave me weird curious looks. I really hope it wasn't a jumping spider but from the way it ran it didn't look like it or I might have cried a little. Those lil...

    As Long As...

    ... they are not that big, or are not within touching distance.  Or they are not doing that thing where they just appear, as if out of nowhere and frighten the life out of you.   If they are none of those things, then I can quite happily/easily sit and watch said spider going...
