A microscopic arachnid tinier than a poppy seed spins diminutive filaments barely visible to the eye; a spiral silk lacework deathtrap for infinitesimal prey strung high between white cornered walls in a microcosmical world. Is its existence more trifling than mine that occupies more space? Perhaps not, in the scheme of things: my universe among the stars is imperceptibly smaller than this occupants’ in my room.

    There are two kinds of people when it concerns spiders. There are those who given the opportunity would stomp the life out of them, and then there are those (myself included) who live by the rule ‘live and let live’.

    Terry, I am glad you were delighted with this unusual perspective of the mundane. I find the ordinary makes for some interesting results. Thanks for the comment.
