A spotted redshank bounces in circles over the pond chiwik-ing loudly. It's the first I have seen from my house. Sit still and life comes to you.

When will I learn?

“What does sedentary mean?” asked Wilbur.
“Means I sit still a good part of the time and don’t go wandering all over creation. I know a good thing when I see it, and my web is a good thing. I stay put and wait for what comes. Gives me a chance to think.”
