I have always had what I call, an irrational fear of spiders. But looking back on my past, it is definitely not irrational. When I was 5 years old,
my grandmother, who was obese and liked to sit in a particular chair all day, told me that if I went into the back yard (where she could not see me
from her chair), I would be in danger of falling into a spider's web and that spider would eat me. Sick, no? I tell you, I have a Master's Degree
in Information Science, yet until this day, I am primally afraid of spiders.
So, being someone who is interested in the truth, I began to observe spiders around my house. I had to try and surpress the urge to kill them. But I
did. And I came to my own realization that they are peaceful creatures. And maybe they are watching us. Watching us and reporting? To a higher
being? I don't know why I feel that way, but it is on a very psychic level. Very odd to me.
I had been watching for days a HUGE, I mean, GINORMOUS, garden spider outside the front of my house. Despite the primal fear, I wanted to see the
creature in action.
But today, when I returned from work, he/she was dead in its own web. I got the most eerie feeling looking at it hanging there. I mean, I saw it
this morning and it was alive. What happened? Somehow, it made me very sad to see it hanging there.
Any explanations woud be welcomed.
