A Life-Long Impulse

Ever since I was a first-grader living on 3 acres in Massachusetts, I've been tipping over small rocks, pieces of bark, and small logs to see what might be living underneath.  This morning, in the vicinity of Bear Creek Falls, the ground was still frozen for the most part, but there were a few signs of animal life - a slow-moving banana slug, a salamander, and lots of ladybugs.  Just as we were about to leave the area, I saw one more tempting log.  When I tipped it over, Voila!  A nice-looking Black Widow Spider.  It was nice to be with a few people who like spiders.
