Don’t merely try to run from your fears; they are not separate from what you are.
[This spider (full of stereoscopic eyes that see all around it) is a Fishing Spider (resting along a river bank). This is one of my favorites. I think they are incredible! If you dislike them or are afraid of them, please (like the late, wonderful naturalist Steve Irwin used to suggest) look at them and be appreciative of them without “learned hatred” and try to see them without prejudice. They don’t make webbing (except for a silken nursery to protect their young). They actively hunt (and roam) along the river for small creatures to eat. They are lightning fast! I also photographed a super big one carrying its huge egg sac up our gazebo near the river. The size of that one was rather shocking! I’ll post photos of that mama later on some time.]
