Encountering spiders: One forward, two back

Email

I am terribly frightened of spiders.

When my brother and I were younger, we'd remove the rocks embedded in our garden and play with the unnamed partitioned-bodied bugs beneath them. Beetles were favorites. I also enjoyed watching centipedes squirm their many legs rhythmically, enabling them to get wherever it is insects are always so decidedly on their way to. (Maybe they have conventions? Lunch appointments? Part-time college courses? And all without mass transit!)
