Spiders were involved, yes...



.... but in a strange way.
.
The leaf happened to float into two sharply angled web anchor strands. They had crossed in mid-air, each one leading to a spider's web 15-20 feet away--in opposite directions--from the accidental (Or maybe spiders plan these things) touch-and-stick juncture that the leaf happened to intersect as it fell. Such a sweet, unlikely coincidence. I just love things like this.

Kathleen,

How can I recieve an accurate e-mail address to invite you to my blog? I post up many interesting things that I would love you to read about, but I have to invite you.

Sincerely,

Katie

Katie, because your blog is invitation only--and because I am sure your parents don't want someone they have never met or heard of, etc...visiting it, I think its best if you write me at kathleen@kathleenduey.com. (it's direct, it comes into my mailbox. and I will answer you from there.

And I have to warn you again, I can't write back and forth very often.I am so sorry! But I get 10- 20 emails a day from readers now and can't keep up!!

all best,
k

What a gorgeous thing, that lace leaf on a wire... beautiful photograph and an intriguing mystery.

A Merry Winter Solstice to you, Kathleen!

Kathleen,

Thanks for the advice and e-mail. I e-mailed you yesterday and I will try inviting you to my blog again. In the meanwhile, I've really been writing. Last week, I made a huge accomplishment- twenty poems in four days. I am still working on my story; The Anthology of a Young Writer.
