. . . a small, small world.
A world full of treasures, a world full of awe.
Did you ever notice that the bigger the circles we run in life, that the harder it is to see
the details, the smaller world around us. And I don't just mean in nature, but the people around us too.
The bigger the circle, the faster we seem to be able to run, and the less we really see.
Making the circle smaller means we will go a little slower and well it sure is easier on my knees, and my eyes!
"Life is a great big canvas,
you should throw all the paint on it you can."
- Danny Kaye
And well, when we slow down . . . we have a better chance of getting some paint on it at all.
I was out this past week gathering some ideas for the garden,
. . . and came across other gatherers.
. . . beautiful roses,

. . . and even more gatherers.
. . . and an itsy bitsy teeny weeny sweat bee.
And yes, I had to share this one! You know spiders have 4 pairs of eyes but have you ever seen them.
Gosh, I could as I'm getting older use an extra pair. We were weeding last weekend when it seems I disturbed this momma to be - uh huh, she is holding her egg sac filled with hundreds of baby spiderlings
who will for the first few weeks of their life hitch a ride on mom's back. That's why you never step on a spider in your house if you're in Texas, or you could have babies scattered everywhere.
And last but not least one of my favorites of the week . . .
