Beetle blessings

Our bathroom beetle met his end the other night "accidentally" under Rick foot.

I will miss him scuttling into hiding. Were he a cockroach, his demise would have been under my foot and not accidentally or "accidentally." Cockroaches bring too many friends.

Reading up on beetles many are revered in other cultures. Some are kept as pets. Here's some of the qualities and symbols of beetledom in different cultures.
  • Time
  • Strength
  • Structure
  • Creativity
  • Recycling
  • Cleanliness
  • Adaptation
  • Community
  • Uniqueness
  • Metamorphosis
  • Transformation
  • Resourcefulness
Sadly our bathroom beetle cannot represent any of these things anymore.

Maybe I should have named our beetle Franz Kafka.
