Im sure you all have this link already, but just in case... It also has 4 years or so of archives. I like to peruse it sometimes and see if there are patterns in the dates and their corresponding pictures.

felt right to post the following :


Quote:The spiders in our vacinity are running a grande show as of late. There are so many webs to untangle, or should I say view from great many an angle. The ability of a spider to spin webbing is an amazing feet, not only can they do the webbing but are able to spin amounts of web that seem to compete against the size of the spider itself. Amazing work is being done and I should venture to notice and share a few images that have spun their way int om y mind.

The ere are a few spiders that reside outside my front door and the number currently is three. They have placed themselves inside the spaced slots of plastic railing that encases our small humble porch. Each has found a slot of it's own and each have displayed an emense design graphic allotment of webbing for the enjoyment of any passer byer.

The middle spider is the largest of the three and has infact the characteristics of a tunnel spider. The tunnel or circular encasement that it has spun around itself is speckled with solid sections, a feat that is itself quite unusual to my eyes. Beyond the gate of the tunnel resides a webbing design that reminds one of a modern art exhibition. There are a multitude of straight lines converging in cross sections that seem to have no descernable pattern whatso ever. This section of the webbing is quite delightful to ponder, since it defies the traditional webbing pattern we have come to know and love as a culture of humans.

So this middle spider settled in to it;s new home for a few days or perhaps a week . I gently blew upon it when i engaged in viewing the web and sometimes shared a puff of my American Spirit or Bison tobacco smoke. It does not seem to mind and has taken to gently acknowledging my presence wit a few fiddles of it's appendages now and then.

Low and behold a day or two ago, I went out to find a traditional circular webbing that had been made in front center on the spiders' space on my rail. It has created a nice spot for me to feed it now with the occasional insect that crawl s upon my arm or leg. The pesky fly is always another treat to share since those little buggers do enjoy flying around the inside of the house on occasion.

You see the spider and I have always been friends. They visited me in a vision as a child, a few years before I underwent a life threatening heart situation. Perhaps the spiders that visited we telling me that everything is in the web and that they had things under control even when I felt that surely there was no one out in this cold world who could help me.

The giant spider or sometimes named Grandmother Spider has the answers. Whether or not we seek her understanding is our own individual choice. She has never visited me in a group setting and most of my deepest and grandest knowledge has been gained on my journey that is only accompanied by my own two feet. I bid you great journeying and understand with the knowledge we gain there is sometimes loss that is untold. Yet, through the ardjuous moments we can always glimmer the hope that resides in our souls that live on the web.

There's no huge, deep message in any of the songs. We recorded a few months of being human. <br /><br />R.i.p. Layne Staley
