Memory Cloth — Spiders Hopping

We moved to Oregon to live in the country after college.  As a suburban kid I was kinda anxious about the creatures in the woods. 

Sitting on the cabin doorstep in the morning sun I saw a spider. 

Just when I started to recoil it began hopping - HOPPING. 

In that moment my fears fell away.  Nature no longer felt scary.
