Personal annals and phenomena
Memories from my life as a simple artist
I once wrote about female striped spiders with twelve legs. These multi-legged creatures can usually be found in the Americas, under down-filled pillows on beds. They are very attracted to the soft feathers of ducks and geese. When crushed by the weight of a person’s head on the pillow, they make a queer jigging movement, and emit a solemn tone.
