What’s with the bugs?

Ok, so on Tuesday, I was driving to work (yes, I do have a day job.. at least until the lotto commission decides to give me my money) and I see something in my side mirror.

Apparently a spider had taken the opportunity to build a web between my mirror and my door over the long weekend. (Nope, I did not move my car all that time… gas prices are a little to steep to be jaunting about over the holiday). Poor little thing! I felt so bad! She was flopping about in the breeze, all curled up in a little ball, hanging on for dear life! Fortunately, at the next light, she decided to crawl between the window and the door.

Dragonfly BraceletNow, I should mention that when I see something unusual, my first thought is always “What is the Universe trying to tell me?” My impression is that I need to learn to hang on when things get too rough, and learn when it’s time to bail! Pretty simple? Sure. But most messages are.

So now I’m thinking about bugs… I’ve been thinking about bugs all week. I gotta admit, I like ’em… I think they are nifty! On my drive home from work yesterday , I remember how I saw this really really really cool bracelet in the Pyramid Catalog and was bemoaning the fact that it was $89.95 and I shouldn’t really spend that $$ on something that I’ll probably lose. Sudden inspiration strikes! I’ll have it tattooed on my arm. Would probably cost me a bit more but I could color it the way I like.. and I’d never lose it..

As I’m driving, I’m contemplating this… should I really be spending money on anything right now? I’m still driving the SUV, mostly because I have no payments left on it, it still runs, and I can get two big dogs in it.

Suddenly, out of nowhere, on my busy urban street, a Dragonfly zooms over my windshield!
