JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 249 :: saving a spider

12 Sep

Day 249: Hero.

Today I saved a spider. A little, itty, bitty spider hiding out in my bathroom. This is only significant because the OLD ME would have flushed him down the toilet. Or stomped on his head. Or crushed him against the wall with my gargantuan size ten shoe.

The NEW ME took out my “spider jar” (a salvaged glass pickle jar) and gently coaxed him into it, telling him stories of how wonderful it would be to live outside. And then I released him (or Her …because maybe it was a girl? or a Mama?) to the wind. Or, rather, the bark at the base of the bushes.

And, how does that make me feel?

Like a hero. A superstar. A woman who has conquered her fears (relatively enough to talk to a spider) and let it go free. And maybe that’s one tiny step for me but it could be one giant step for mankind? And you know what… it feels good to be a hero, even if only to one little spider.

Namaste mother spider. Namaste.

More tomorrow.
