The Hawaiian Princess. Snot nosed, bow-legged, chubby, little arms and her hair in full rebellion, she stumbled by like the drunken baby she is. "Fuhk," she blurted spastically as she passed. Great, now the children are turning against us. These days, it seems everyone on this compound is walking around dazed from the sudden bursts of heat, lethargically whispering, "Fugg," as they drag their swollen feet through the fields. The guava trees have long been dead, but now the island is yearning for more. It's taken my phone - yesterday it died, no hope of resuscitation - and now it's coming for more. My back is sore from lifting stacks and stacks of eggs; i'm forced to walk jaggedly, close the island earth...it's sucking me in; i can feel it.
The spiders have multiplied. I've been living with them for three months, now, and I no longer mind them. Webs luxuriously drape the entirety of yurt village...their has been a Mother spider living in my shower, carrying a satchel of eggs in her mouth since I arrived. Two days ago, the satchel hatched and out crawled ten little spiders. There's Bobby, Maurice, Carlisimo, Madeline, Deborah, Hilda, Rochester, Sara, Maria & Baby. I'll put up a picture soon. There's a bright yellow spider that hangs overhead; her name is Lerato which means "Love" in Afrikaans....i'm not in love with her, that's just her name...Lerato.
