“Autumn wins you best by this: its mute

Appeal to sympathy for its decay.” ~ Robert Browning ~

“The changing year’s progressive plan

Proclaims mortality to man.” ~ Horace ~

A lot of changes in autumn.  Most of the dragonflies and hummingbirds have left.  Changes for me too.  I’m sure the caterpillars are not afraid when they transform into moths and butterflies.  I can’t say the same for me.

Smile Again

“For of all sad words of tongue or pen,

The saddest are these: ‘It might have been!’ ” ~John Greeleaf Whittier ~

I needed a dose of my own dragonfly medicine today.  I have Pearl Jam “Black” on continuous replay.  Not good for smiling.  I was going to post a Black Widow spider, but my spider pictures don’t seem to go over well.
