Some days you are the spider
and some days you are the fly, or the wasp in this case. I'm not the first to say that but the metaphor spoke in my head when I caught this duo at my back door this afternoon. Energy and dynamics are flying around my neck of the woods like black flies in June. I, for the most part, feel more like an observer than a participant, with the exception of, maybe, scratching my allergy infested eyes. Political turmoil and hoo-ha (an official Theodor Seuss Geisel term, I'm sure) in my own backyard, a birthday passed and although not a milestone number, I am feeling that each one that comes around is a milestone in itself.
