Quote for Today: Alice Oswald

Webs are made mostly of spaces. They break easily. They barely exist. They belong to the category of half-things: mist, smoke, shrouds, ghosts, membranes, retinas or rags; and they quickly fill up with un-things: old legs and wings and heads and hollow abdomens and body bags of wasps.

Alice Oswald, “Cradles of jewels, spun in an hour,” New Statesman, 20th September, 2012
