Spider web

“This whole endeavor of making a web requires a deep commitment to innovation and flexibility. The end result and process … are characterized by a capacity to adapt to shifting contours, ever changing environments, and unexpected intrusions. A web, therefore, can never be thought of as permanent, fixed, or rigid. The spider’s genius lies in its ability to adapt, reshape, and remake its web of connections within the realities presented in a given space.” ~ John Paul Lederach, The Moral Imagination

What is your web of relationships that helps you adapt and reshape?


Some of the basic human needs are to be seen, known and understood. Such spaces are like a sheltered cove, allowing us to venture out into the open waters and storms that the challenges in our world, community and life present.

Where are your sheltered coves?
