Oh well, I was just excited when I googled “dirt worship” and very little came up. It’s almost like I had an original thought!

A while ago, a door-to-door salesman’s eyes bugged out and he jumped back, yelling “There’s a spider on you!” I looked down at the spider running across my shirt, and thought to myself, “It’s just a bene (pronounced ‘benny,’ a beneficial organism),” so I looked up and said, “Oh, he’s fine.” I figured I might be starting to look like some kind of tree-hugging dirt worshiper, which, literally speaking, I am.

Just don’t think that that makes me into the most scrupulous recycler or anything like that. It’s only a different point of view.

Also, don’t take it as evangelism. I may worship a prehistoric agricultural deity, but something tells me it is ok, even extra appropriate, for hairdressers, astronomers, hunter-gatherers and sundry to bow down at different altars (including secular, atheist devotions, Mom). I yam what I yam.



  1. Oh, you DO remember that you have a mom!

  2. “Oh, he’s fine.” Classic!

    I like Social Ferment(ation)… and there sure is a lot of fermenting going on around the world in recent days.

  3. I like the original name of your blog – I think you should leave it … i.m.h.o. :)
