living together

yesterday, when i wanted to pin up the South cutout window cloth, i had to first vacuum up a web. i made this intention known by banging on the wood all around. then vacuumed then pinned up the cloth. just now, i noticed that during the night, there was a different intention/determination. this time not up in the corner, but down and across the basket of onion skins. you can see her on the right at the bottom of the vertical board. she has jude's magic thread legs...of course.

hey grace... grandmother spider... whenever anyone in our family sees a spider in a significant way, we take it to mean the ancestors are watching or speaking or trying to show us something... maybe keep an eye out?

all the spiders in our house have names. it creeps folk out that i let
them stay. they are weavers after all and i think they light be teaching me in my sleep.
there are chipmunks in the wood pile and birds in the porch roof, squirrels in the attic and spiders in the corners of the studio. i enjoy the company.

are the same blue as the ice in

reflected light....
