We were sitting outdoors in the early dusk finishing off half a watermelon when my family asked me... "Why don't you post pictures anymore?"

Why, indeed.

Last week I was chiding a friend for letting the stress of his daily doings fizzle the life out of him when he asked me... "You mean like your work is doing to you?"

Cornered on every side. Drat.

I looked up to let the evening sunlight flood and rinse my eyes and saw this:



Hanger hook caught in spider web. What are the odds? And I thought to myself... you are the hook this time, caught in a web you didn't ask for; but you are letting it fizzle the life out of you.

Love came around me tonight - honest, unmistakable love.

Hehe, isn't it funny how the truth comes at us from everywhere we look? I hope it will pass soon and you will be free of that web. I like the picture! :)

Your family and your friend are right...don't get too caught up in the stressful stuff that you forget to enjoy yourself. I'm glad that you posted today. I miss you when you don't! Carla

Isn't life amazing. How cosmic to look up and then see that question mark in a spider's web no less. I LOVED this post!!!

Allison, I can't offer much more than the others have, but it always brings a smile to my face when I have that ah-ha moment, when I look inside myself. Nothing more refreshing.

PS: love your Wednesday photo and the joy I hear when you speak of your cousin.
