“Look over there.  That’s a spider’s web!” Dolly exclaimed, pointing. “I’m afraid of spiders.”

“We natives do not fear them.  Look closely.  The web leaves a small hole in the middle that allows good dreams to pass through while the web catches the bad dreams.”

“Is it bad luck for us to see a spider’s web on our wedding day?”

He shook his head.  “No.  For my people the Spider is Grandmother, the link to the past and future.  She spins together the threads of life with her webs.  Today, you and I are weaving a new life together.”
