Maybe I am have too much time to think about things since I am staying inside most of the time now, but I saw a small moth in my bathroom yesterday. It was very small, maybe four or five millimeters long, and it had silvery wings. This iota of a moth was drinking water droplets on the wall next to the towels. It was fascinating. Unfortunately, by the time I got my phone out, it left.
While I was sad, it got me thinking, if organisms had theme songs, what would they be? For some reason, I kept on thinking of spiders. How they moved their eight legs in a coordinated fashion. It remined me of how horses run, where for a very brief moment, all of the horse’s legs are off the ground. Almost like they were hopping or doing mini-jumps. And then it hit me. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice theme song from Fantasia. Now, I cannot get the idea from my head of the music syncing with movements of any spider. Especially Daddy Long’s Legs.

If I had fun coming up with a theme song for an organism, why couldn’t anyone else?
