holding Place

i gave her White Tara when i deliberately disrupted her home a couple days ago. i'll tell the truth; my intention was to
scoot her into a jar and take her outside. but it was not to be. she has constructed her diorama perfectly so she can
instantly disappear into that crack.
she has chosen to stay in this particular place. her spiderly intention is no less than mine. i accept her as equal. and
as i write that, i wonder what her sense of it all is?

this picture is so beautiful grace, and for some reason touches me deeply. tenacious and determined to stand her ground. she must feel it there for some reason of her own.

i haven't been around much at all, anywhere... much is shifting in my life and it's a bit too much for the moment... so i am taking it moment by moment.

jennlui ~ well, like L. Bourgeois
here...i'll just wait here for
you or in Spirit Cloth,
weave the thought of you into
the whole of it.
maybe tie a little of jude's magic
thread around an ankle......?
if you do, let me know if it works.
love to you

Oh-spiders are magic. Think how it would be to spin a silky web and feel the wind rock it? The traditional "creepys", snakes and
spiders, are really very beautiful.

And I love White Tara...lovely photo.

patty...yes they are and this one is Teaching.
there is a beautiful bull snake
out there somewhere, used to live
under the guinea hen palace, don't know if still?....only allows me
to see her maybe once a summer
but "shows" her Presence that one
time in such an amazing way. I will see the dogs all circled and
starring into the close flower bed
....and there she will be....maybe
5,6 ft of her, then suddenly, gone.

Oh my, that's some snake! We have Madam Blacksnake and her brood here
in rural Va. I love to see her because she's territorial and will
drive off rattlers and copperheads.

I actually look behind me for her
before backing out as she likes to sun herself in the sand.

Good to know there are other spider savers in the world.

My mother had a spider for several months that she just left there until it moved on...she said it seemed like the right thing to do. I'm not sure what Jude said in the recent class...but I'd guess that this is another form of touching edges (she's talked about that on her blog at times)...the edges of worlds.

what if she can also live in one of your cloths?
