Confirmation

The spider webs at the camp where we held our Confirmation retreat were something to behold. At night you saw them stretched from the tops of outdoor lights to the pillars on which the lights were mounted, two, three, even four of them, inches away from each other, and each one occupied by a massive host. The gnats drawn to the light kept the webs twittering constantly.

They were fascinating. Though there was a time when such a sight would have repulsed me and filled me with terror. You grow out of that, maybe.

What else can I grow out of?
