Web Tries

I have yet to get a great photo of a spider web. The light has to be just right and I feel like I would have to be at just the right angle. Any tips from those who have had success at shooting this ellusive-to-me subject?

Deep Within

Last day of middle school for my younger daughter today. She will be headed to high school in the fall whereas my older one just graduated high school and will be headed to college. So many changes.

My neighbors house caught fire last fall. They are just now finally able to start tearing down the damage in order to rebuild.

Missouri Peaceful Weather

Unlike last night at 2am when I woke everyone up and dragged them to the basement because the tornado was headed our way! Rotation was approaching and then it veered North of us. No damage to speak of except in Jefferson City, our state’s capital some 100 miles away. Prayers go out to them.

Things in the Dark

I suffer from sleep related hallucinations called hypnagogic and hypnopompic hallucinations. The first occurs as you are falling asleep and the second as you are waking up. Mine usually happen when I am stressed and not sleeping well and therefore, wake up on and off throughout the night.

These hallucinations can be visual or tactile and include the perception of sights or sounds that aren’t actually there. Mine are usually of people and the hallucination doesn’t go away unless I turn on a light.

Only twice have I had a tactile hallucination. Once of something tapping me on the back and another of something pressing down on the top of my head. They are really freaky to have even when you know they are not real at the time.
