“A tiny spider rains sunlight upon me through its web.”
I saw this spider web at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York this summer (August 2010). The spider is so tiny that it does not show up in the picture. The web is a metaphor for my teaching, my research, my life, and the pursuit of sustainability. I like the idea that spider webs are associated with writers. During the first week of my classes, my students and I discuss the spider web and how it serves as a metaphor for the subject matter of our class and learning in general.
