Along Came A Spider....

"The means to gain happiness is to throw out from oneself like a spider in all directions an adhesive web of love, and to catch in it all that comes."

Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy


[Craver, this pretty much sums up how blogging affects me. Yes, this is short and sweet; but you know everyone comes for the photo! ;)]



Thank You Tara!








Thank You Akelamalu!

Tolstoy was profound in many ways ... To get by giving without thought to reciprocial gains is a lofty pursuit.

Carletta: Nice photo of the spider. It looks like the spider has eyes on the body.

Congratulations to your awards !

I don't know what happens this year but we have a lot of spiders hanging around with their nets (and I walk with my nose into them) I find spiders disgusting although they are real artists !

Cute spider, if a spider can be considered cute.
