February 17


We had an interesting occurrence recently, and an added life lesson. The rose hair tarantula was beginning to look a little “full”, and seemed sluggish. I thought it might be ready to molt. Sure enough, a few days later, it appeared as though there were two spiders in the cage, but one was the molted exoskeleton of the spider (as seen on the left of the top photo), and the new larger tarantula was poking around.

What a metaphor for our own life experience. Sometimes when things seem to have a tight grip on us, we just need to shed some constraints and stretch ourselves to accommodate. Suddenly we realize we’ve grown in the process. Ohm!
