Yesterday, the maddened winds burst open the evening gloom with thrashing rain. This morning, a tranquil, grey haze, veils the coastal town of Morattandi. Looking out of my studio window, I witness a stillness in the garden. It is as if, all of nature is soaked with calmness, and patience. Stepping outdoors, I’m ambushed by an oblique sliver of silvery thread, cutting across my eyes. Gliding downward, at its far end, is an extraordinary Arachnae, stunning in both color and form! Like an expert parachuter, it lands gracefully upon the granular terrain beneath. Disappearing in a flash, into the wet wilderness beyond, it’s restless temperament, contrasts the stillness all around!
