The Element of Surprise

I just saw a bunch of bats. I love bats and birds and squirrels and other animals that can just explode into existence and flitter around in a frighteningly unmethodical fashion without pattern or any reason apparent to the individual who is taken by surprise, and especially without any reverence for the heart-pounding monster who for some reason is frightened by the sudden actions of such a tiny and virtually harmless creature. I think they're fabulous just for that reason. In my life of unfortunate methodical menotony, repeating patterns and cycles, and my requirement of perfection, such stark unpredictability is purely beautiful.
