BEAT THE DRUM SLOWLY is the story of war, parenthetically and unfortunately, it is also unavoidably, the story of man's history. From our earliest days, conflict has been the single most common characteristic of humanity. Man has fought man and men have fought men on every continent, every ocean and every island from the moment one set eyes on…
A spider arrives, uninvited, in a little girl’s den. At first the girl is scared and uncertain about her new guest, but as she watches and sees the beauty this feared creature can create, she learns that there’s more to be considered than just this small creature’s outer shell. In time, she realizes that lesson applies to life as well and that just because people come from different places or cultures, races or beliefs, we’re not very different deep down inside. Moreover, the spider shows her that regardless of how we may look on the outside, we all have unique gifts and talents, and through them, we can all add to the beauty of our world.
The goal of the Spider in My Den series is to continue to bring about the awareness that all creatures be it human, animal or insect, have a need to survive, to be loved and to share this beautiful place we call Earth.
