Finely, Finally


The spider, dropping down from twig,
Unfolds a plan of her devising,
A thin premeditated rig
To use in rising.

And all that journey down through space,
In cool descent and loyal hearted,
She spins a ladder to the place
From where she started.

Thus I, gone forth as spiders do
In spider’s web a truth discerning,
Attach one silken thread to you
For my returning.

-E. B. White

Yesterday I had my last class at uni. Five years since school, three years in Communication Design. I hung around yesterday for a late lecture as a honorary last visit and it came with satisfying closure.

  1. 1. Observe your world
  2. 2. Communicate with your world
  3. 3. Persuade your world in a positive way

    Nice milestone all the same.

    I can hear some Emily Dickinson in the E.B. White quote. Siders seem to thrive in the Autumn.
