Recently my Mom posted this on my Facebook page. What a brilliant idea. I wish I had thought of it!
I particularly like the realistic hand drawing!
Spiders are not my favourite creature on the earth, and I have had more traumatic experiences than I care to remember…in the house, the office, the car, even in my purse! But I do try to respect their space when I’m outside. After all, the great outdoors is their living room, not mine.
The other day, as I settled into my chair on the back porch with a fresh cup of tea, I noticed something sparkling in an empty space between the apple tree and the clothesline. A space that shouldn’t occupy anything that sparkles. So, of course, I investigated.
This little guy is a distant cousin to the spider who has taken up residence between our porch and the neighbour’s porch. We eye each other I’m sitting in my chair, but as long as he leaves me alone, I’ll leave him alone.
The artist is a receptacle of emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web. – Pablo Picasso
This very late post is in response to Cee Nuener’s Black & White Challenge: New Photos! Hubby and Little Guy were away this week, so I’ve been spending my hours painting trim and stair risers. I may never stand straight again! 🙂

We found the way out
The city takes everything it can
But outside the crowds, I can feel my lungs again
– Dark Horses, Switchfoot
I always thought it would be fun to be a city girl, to live right down town with the hustle & bustle, the arts, the neon lights. Turns out, I’m happier living near open spaces.
I love that I can look out my office window and see flocks of geese in the Spring and Fall. I love the sparkle of fresh powder of a crisp winter day. And I love listening to the crickets singing in the evening. I prefer spacious places.
He brought me out into a spacious place;
He rescued me because He delighted in me. – Ps. 18:19 (NIV)

I wanted to travel from the beginning. As a kid, I used to dream about airplanes, before I ever flew in one. – Mary Ellen Mark
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, –and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of. – John Gillespie Magee, Jr.
