**Side By side, crawling up my house was this unlikely Pair. A VERY large spider and a wooly Caterpillar. This was the second VERY large Spider I saw outside my home, and not long after, We found a few indoors! Right before bedtime, in the bedrooms, no less. Eeek! Not My cup of Tea**
As Native American Totems, Animals, insects and
reptiles are representative of lessons we are called to learn.
The Lesson of the Spider is: Balance, Wisdom, Creativity and Communication.
The Lesson of the Caterpillar is: preparedness for transformation, and the quality of inching along, or moving slowly, moment by moment, for the greater good of the transformation ahead.
(Synchronistically, I keep hearing the song "One Step at a Time", By Jordan Sparks)
I have never failed to see a connection in the out-of -the ordinary animal sitings, and what's happening in my life at the moment.
I believe the most profound insights can be found in the most ordinary occurrences. I enjoy being present in the great outdoors with my family and my pets, and writing about the every day. I am easily and often moved to tears. I love reading, and writing both poetry and prose; hiking and, kayaking and boating on The Chesapeake Bay where I walk the shore line with our family dog Captain looking for sea glass and capturing it all on my I Phone camera.
