Abundance

web-in-the-rainThe spiders web that has been on my patio for weeks I thought was abandoned, is in fact inhabited. I’ve been watching it for weeks and have been so taken with it that I even snapped a few pictures of it in the rain the other day because I love the way the drops of water cling to the silk, but the whole point is that I was surprised to find him in the web and I watched him wrap up his dinner. He flipped it over and over, wrapping it in silk with each revolution and then for a moment I thought he had dropped it but he had made a little backpack of his dinner. He dragged it it higher and then climbed the summit of his web where he tucked himself into a cozy corner to enjoy his meal. In my abundance I had forgotten that some don’t come by their food so easily.
