Spider wove the web that brought humans the first picture of the alphabet. The letters were part of the angle of her web.
Deer asked Spider what she was weaving, and why all the lines looked like symbols. Spider replied, "Why Deer, it is time for Earth's children to learn to make records of their progress in their Earth Walk." Deer answered Spider, "But they already have pictures that show through symbols the stories of their experiences." "Yes," Spider said, "But Earth's children are growing more complex, and their future generations will need to know more. The ones to come won't remember how to read the petroglyphs."
So it was that Spider wove the first alphabet for us to use, and to teach our children. Now tell me you don't love Spider!
