In the spirit of Halloween!  Creepy Crawler 
Anyone who knows me well knows that I am PETRIFIED seriously PETRIFIED of spiders. I literally have night terrors about them - jolting my hubby awake from a sound sleep with my blood curdling screams! Well I came across this fellow on a black eyed Susan in a my field and was fascinated enough with him to take is pic. It is a Goldenrod Crab Spider.

Profound Soul A lotus flower represents purity of heart. They symbolize resurrection because many of the lilies close their flowers at night and reopen in the morning at first sunlight. Buddhists regard the lotus flower as a symbol of enlightenment because of the beautiful bloom that emerges from the mud. They also consider the lotus flower a symbol of purity, spontaneous generation and divine birth. Symmetry is another manifestation of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow of ch'i.

Fall Dreamcatcher – Here are a few fun facts about autumn!

According to Greek legend, autumn beings when Persephone returns to Hades in the underworld. Heartbroken, her mother, the goddess of grain and harvest, allows the crops on Earth to die until her daughter returns in the spring.

According to seasonal patterns of relationships in Facebook profiles, autumn is the time when more singles change their status to “In a Relationship” or “Engaged” than the yearly average. More breakups occur during the summertime.

According to superstition, catching leaves in autumn brings good luck. Every leaf means a lucky month next year.


I fell in love with this scenery at Itasca State Park in Northern Minnesota. This is one of my first designs. I have titled this Fall Dreamcatcher because it reminds me of a dreamcatcher. Symmetry is another manifestation of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow of ch'i.
