Waltz and Weave
Dear Ready to Lend a Hand,
I bring this image, clip and article to you of the sociable weavers, so that we may become a more perfect society. If you don't feel like joining the crowd, you may instead be inspired by the accretive force and sculptural beauty of these birds' nests.

I am working on my waltz these days. It is also instrumental in forming a more perfect society. I hope you will take the opportunity to learn to waltz. If we keep at it, and we get reasonably good at it, we can take our feet out to a grand ballroom, like the Blackpool Tower. We might even see the Wurlitzer descend, during the organ changeover.
Until we meet on the ballroom, or out on the veldt.
