Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Caught in the Web

The other morning, I opened the garage door to find a large moth hanging from a spider web that hadn't been there the night before.

What would a small spider do with such a large moth? After wrapping the tip of the wing, she'd given up on it. What she'd caught was more than she could handle.

Sometimes small efforts lead to large rewards. I guess we have to be prepared to deal with those unexpected rewards.

When we cast our webs, there's no telling what we might catch.
