‘Oh, what a tangled web we weave … ‘

TLT week 33: a ball of orange wool

photo by Philip Estrada – you’ll find a bigger version here


One lie found out – one dropped stitch in the perfectly constructed weave of my deception – and the whole thing unravelled.

Now I watch my life from the outside, a tangled mass of knots, threads too twisted for anyone to make sense of – even me.

One more knot to tie and then I’m done. I hope it’s strong enough to hold my weight.

  1. Oooh, I like this. I really wasn’t sure about the photo, but it’s brought out such a varied collection of lines.

    But I’ve no idea what’s going on with comments and pingbacks, because this one didn’t ping back to the post even though the link is here… Let’s see if my comment makes it this time :/


    1. Hi Sonya, I’ve taken your comments out of spam but I’m unsure if that means all future comments from you will be trashed. I know Jane at Making it Write had the same problem a few months make and had to contact WP about it. Seems to be solved now though. Will try to keep an eye on my pingbacks – who knows what happens with these things sometimes, gremlins creep into the works.
