I recently went out in the morning to find so many spider webs that I wondered if we were being cocooned in webs. My entire house wrapped in thin threads miraculously spun by spiders. I'm not a fan of spiders in the house, but I have no problem with them outside.
I remember reading All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten by Robert Fulghum. He had one story where a lady left her house to, as I remember, go running. She immediately began to move her arms in funny ways around her face and head. She had apparently run into a large spider web. I don't know about you, but I've done that- and I think about Mr. Fulghum's story whenever it happens. He tries to get the reader to see things from the perspective of the hungry spider. especially when the spider realizes how very large his "catch" actually is. It's a very funny piece of writing. I read several of his books after this one and found them to be enjoyable. I haven't read anything of his recently, but these webs made me remember this delightful story.
Regardless of how you feel about spiders, I bet you'll agree that it's fascinating that they can weaver such incredible patterns just from their instincts.
