    • I much prefer my spiders from a safe distance, no matter what sort they are–trust issues, perhaps? 😉 But they intrigue me all the same, and more than that, I like things about the graceful Arachne and her magical spinning, so I just wanted to play with that tale when I wrote the piece.

    • No, no indeed–the photos are from earlier times. In fact, the one with the spider is from several years ago, and I just happened to come upon it again when I was preparing the post. That little arachnid is *long* gone, as is her iris throne. 🙂

    • No, I didn’t know that, but of course it makes perfect sense now you mention it. You won’t be surprised to know I didn’t know there was such a thing as a double sonnet, either, but then I’m an ignoramus about a whole lot of poetry’s forms and proper techniques. I’m horribly un-scholarly about so many things it’s kind of amazing I can get through the day sometimes. Ah, well, good thing I spend my time among very tolerant and lenient folk like you who are still willing to clue me in when possible! Thanks! 🙂

    • Thank you, dear Smidge, I can’t say I’m wildly keen on spiders either, if they try to get too friendly with me. A nice window or camera lens between them and me is always welcome! But I’m delighted you enjoyed the post. 🙂 xo!

  1. Not even a warning nor spider alert? I fear this to be a continuation of last Friday, the day to be forever known as the Day of the Spider. I did battle with 4 of the beasts, dispatching each shortly after each attacked. I would give better details but now I must wipe the Raid off my monitor. You really should post a warning.

    • Sorry, John–I *did* put a warning in the first line of the post, but probably should have made the type larger or in a nice alarming red or something. Mea culpa. I’ll try to remember and do better next time. I *am* glad you conquered the monsters on your own turf and survived them all!
