#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream

Meadow Web

Meadow Web

I came from a family of repairers. The spider is a repairer. If you bash into the web of a spider, she doesn’t get mad. She weaves and repairs it.
— Louise Bourgeois: 'A Web of Emotions,' The Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2010/jun/01/louise-bourgeois

 When someone

something bashes into me

I am mad in an instant - desire to strike

let me use my hurt to hurt

I suspect Louise Bourgeois

unlike the spider, was often mad

maybe what she means

is bashing back

isn't necessary

if repair

is a silken thread

of focus your guts

spin, an internal

uncompromising

use of energy

to feel whole
