A road made of wool and thick cotton threads runs smoothly for four meters, then a weft of wooden sticks causes it suddenly to twist and tangle for another couple of meters. Then it runs smoothly once again for another four meters, this time showing the color on the opposite side. Perhaps a metaphor for what often happens in our lives?
