My life has been full of stress lately.  My wife has been sick, and I have spent more time driving around on errands than I ever care to again.  The other day I had a few minutes, and I was able to lie down to get some rest.  But I was so mentally unsettled that I had to get up and walk around.  The only thing I could think to do was to take my camera outside and take some pictures.


Fortunately, the weather was perfect.


This harvestman is Leiobunum vittatum.


The situation has not changed, but somehow I feel better.



Photography is like music.  Sometimes just the act of doing it can give you great comfort.
