When I walked into the side yard yesterday, I realized a little spider left a special calling card hanging in the air. There it was, suspended in space and only slightly tethered to a tree, an enormous spider web covered in dew. It looked like a snowflake dangling over my head. It was a gift.
Do you ever think about our gifts and how we spread them around the world? Everybody has something special that we contribute to our little universe. This spider left a beautiful web. Mine happens to be painting rugs.
I recently delivered a new floorcloth to my friend and several days later I was just staring at it over dinner. It looked really awesome! I was struck by the life that the room had taken on with a painted rug on the floor. It was almost magical. (Except of course I remembered all the work that went into creating it!) I think there is some magic when the creative process takes over. And I like to think that its a little like fairy dust. You can’t really see it but you know there is energy in the air. Its just a thought, but I am going to sprinkle fairy dust everywhere I can!
