A delicate balance...

The other morning the world around here was covered in fine webs.
 Everywhere I looked they were stretched from here to there and back again....
A cats cradle of the finest silk string...
 Nature is always there to remind us...
 ...of the fragility...
 ...the strength...
 ...the pursuit of perfection...
 The need to connect to something solid...
 To anchor ourselves ...
 To find the right zone...
 Sometimes life makes no sense.
 Leaves us incomplete...
 How it can all fall apart in one breath...
 But in the end how beautiful it all is...
 
 "Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature.
It will never fail you."
Frank Lloyd Wright.

Nature never fails to show us something about life if we really look. You, my dear, have really outdone yourself with this post.
The photos, the thoughts, the photos, photos, photos... Beautiful and amazing.
Thank you for "seeing" what the natural world is telling us. Thank you for sharing this with your readers. C.
