Remember this picture from yesterday's post? Its one I took on Saturday at my friend's house. Well guess what I just found in the middle of my living room. EEEEUUUUUUUUU
(I'm such a wuss... a city 'don't-let-nature-touch-me' slicker who really isn't slick at all.)
I noticed a caterpillar at the base of the stand I sit my brush caddy on... in the middle of the living room. How in the hell did this creature get in here? I don't even want to think about it. Is it from my neighborhood or did it catch a ride with me from my friend's place? EEEEUUUUUUUU I still don't even want to think about it. Sometimes there are answers you just don't want to know.
I didn't want to take the time to take another picture. After all, it looks just like this one. I jumped and then grabbed some paper, got the creature on the paper and took it outside. Did you know caterpillars roll up into balls when they think they are in trouble? I didn't either, but they do... just like a potato bug.
Now... is this my animal totem? A fuzzy caterpillar? hmmmmm.
I just went and searched. Here's a totem definition that is short and to the point: "Messages and Meanings: transition period, preparation for upcoming change, transformation."
