We all felt, at least once, that our problems have become big and heavy as dinosaurs. To overcome this deceiver proportion, I think it helps to lift our eyes to the sky. “Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us” said the great Carl Sagan.

While this is a big perspective, there’s also the small one, equally beautiful. Using our eyes or adding a lens for details, we can take a look at the universe beneath our feet, in grandma’s backyard or the city park. It abounds in life, colorful, diverse, complex, fascinating life.

Spiders spinning their clever webs, watching for prey with robot-like eyes, eating it unhurried, exploring.

I think that spiders are amazing. They are nature's original architects.

My god I love these guys. Robber Fly. When I was little, and one would find me, it would follow me for about a block before getting bored. I used to have wonderful conversations with them.

I remember catching grasshoppers as a child. It was fun to chase them and catch them, but it wasn’t interesting the way catching a frog or lizard or snake was interesting, so I always just tossed them back into the field.
