Spiders, As Artists of Temporary Works
This week, I have been busy with lots of different things, some quilting, some sewing, and the web patrol that must be done whether I like it or not. I am not certain why spiders love to make their cobwebs in places where everyone can see them. but my theory is that they are artists in their own right and want to share just like quilters do. I do appreciate the geometry of a web, but I consider each to be a temporary work of art. Once I spot two, the vacuum comes out and I hit all the high and low spots. Unfortunately, the spiders have not gotten the word, so I usually need to perform my ritual every week.
