introduction (selfie ec)
I guess it's finally #introduction time. I'm Sig! I'm a 32-year-old trans guy (he/him) from the Boston area, currently living in North Ostrobothnia, Finland, with my spouse @Jonas, two cats, a boa and a bunch of plants.
Right now I spend most of my time learning Finnish, taking care of my pets, gardening, baking, bicycling, and enjoying nature. I also draw, but that's been kinda on and off lately. I've also been known to play a vidja game but don't tell anyone.
re: talkin about spiders (no pics)
the other spider lived in a little fist-sized cobweb right next to the water.
this spider was even tinier; I could have easily never noticed it if I hadn't spent so much time gazing at that particular spot from my hammock (which hangs from two spruces growing right at the shoreline). even then I could have just forgotten about it rather than checking to see if the same spider was still there from day to day.
it stayed there pretty much all summer. eventually a second spider showed up, a little guy with a smaller abdomen, a male. they danced around for a couple days, then he was gone, and for a while she stayed there, abdomen getting fatter and fatter, until one day she was gone too.
talkin about spiders (no pics)
while spending all those hours down by the river last summer, I became personally acquainted with two tiny spiders. one had a little web in the umbel of a tall apiaceous plant of some sort – some species of Angelica, I think. it was a beautiful big plant, a standout among the sun-dappled growth, always looking proud and significant. if you saw this plant in a videogame you'd try to interact with it. it was a proud perch for this spider, who did really well there, its web always full.
the plant was right next to my path down to my hangout spot, about chest height, and I greeted the little spider whenever I went down there. it was there for a few weeks then disappeared, its web gradually breaking apart as the plant's spherical puffs of white flowers started going to seed. I don't know if maybe a bird got it (its home being so high and prominent) or maybe it went off to find a mate, but it sure seemed like a fat and happy lil guy for a while there.
