Sunlight and the Spider
Patterns make us comfortable. They are pleasing to the eye and in life they make us feel secure. Repetition, symmetry, predictability. We find quiet calm in these things.
On this beautiful summer day, last year, I saw a spider weaving her web of comfort and security in a neighbour’s yard. It was stunning, to say the least. The sunlight danced on the silken strings and the sweetness of the spider’s calm, mindlessly going about her business was such a privilege to see. I hope you enjoy this picture as much as I have.
