A simple moment that made me smile when I awoke this morning.
Some of the spiders around here can be big and pretty fierce, but even so, I think this one is probably a bit delusional. Mind you, at high tide the water does reach this web and I have seen the fish jumping for flies that venture too close to the surface, so you never know.
I’ve seen similar altars in various other parks and woodland walks, ranging from simple wooden ones to ornate marble creations. This splendid example is in Ham Woods in Plymouth. If you see one, don’t walk on by, stop and rest awhile. Listen to the birds and the rustling trees while you let your soul breathe. Make a sacrifice of five minutes at an altar to time.
