Monsoons season is upon us. How do I know? Sighted this week; one tarantula, one palo verde beetle and one Colorado river toad. All these come out right before the rains start.They creep and crawl around my back door looking for a way in. The crickets start to chirping too. They've been active for a few weeks, walking, stalking, hopping and creeping around but not so much as a peep...until this week. Oh, and of course the artist has started painting billowing thunder heads and rain-laden lowering skies redolent and ambrosial, harking back to better times when the world was young.
