    1. This weekend we saw a special exhibit of Peter Paul Rubens, and two photography exhibits, and a perennial favorite: medieval and renaissance decorative arts. Yet what photograph did I come home with? A masterpiece by a spider.

    1. If the little spider had been weaving her web when I walked by, I would have stayed to watch this tiny piece of art in the making.

      Thank you Karen.
