Spiders seem to be everywhere lately. They are surrounding my home and popping up in conversations. Are we missing a sign? Is the Great Goddess of Teotihuacan trying to turn our little piece of the world in to spider Shangri-la? Or is Arachne telling us to get our weave on?
If you are not particularly arachnophobic, and I know some of you are, take time out to watch our 8-legged brethren in their daily exploits. Spiders are fascinating creatures. InsectIdentification.org is a great site for naming the arachnids in and around your general area.
My personal belief is that if you are inundated with spiders you are ignoring a project that needs to be woven together in one way or another. They will keep coming around until you complete the task. Also, if you kill a spider 100 more will come to take its place. Just sayin’.
