When I walk in the woods with Fate, we always stop and visit with certain trees. Now Fate knows which ones they are and she runs to them before I get there and waits for me.
This tree, with the scar that goes from it’s roots to the top most branch, is one of them.
I always find something new in the woods too. I love how the many ovals of this tree, drew me in, like an eye staring at me. But as fascinated as I was, I didn’t stay too long. I didn’t want to meet the spider who makes her home here.

Maria, I love to see the connections you make to things. This is in its truest sense what learning is all about. It should be a vaccine we inject all newborns. With booster shots! Thank you!
I’ll admit to giving in once and using a long twig to “knock” at the door of a tunnel spider… and then shrieked and almost fell over when it dashed out. Now I just peer in from a distance like you 🙂
Oh what an appropriate name for the spider Abrah. I didn’t know what kind of spider it was. But I’m sure I’d have had the same reaction as you.
