I am an insectophobe. One of my greatest fears is lice in my kids’ hair. Particularly in my daughter’s long, curly hair. My fear is based on experience. You see, bugs love Abby. She’s had lice twice, a spider egg hatch in her bedroom, fleas in her bed from a stray cat that she snuck into our home, a tick embedded in her scalp, and what seemed like hundreds of swollen, bruised mosquito bites all over her body.
There are so many things that I love about nature. I have always had an affinity for water. I love to look at it, sit by it, and if it’s warm and relatively clean, I love to swim in it. I am awed by the power of wind and fascinated by the constantly changing sky. I am an amateur photographer, and look upon my surroundings through my camera’s perspective, finding beauty in most every landscape. That being said, most people who know me wouldn’t peg me for a “Nature Girl.”
