Having barely woken up, so not quite fully awake yet, she didn’t immediately react. She doesn’t remember being shocked or feeling confused. She was certain that the web wasn’t there when she went to bed, so she just looked at it for a few seconds wondering what it really was and where it could have come from. She thought it possible she was still dreaming, so she rubbed her eyes really well. She then looked toward the ceiling. But again, she saw the surreal site. The strange looking web was still there.
Now she started to get quite anxious, but decided to get a hold of herself and to give the eye-rubbing another try. She was shocked to see that now the web had simply vanished. Gone without a trace. The ceiling was again plain white and free of anything foreign on it. My mother could never understand nor explain what had actually occurred. Much like herself, the rest of us can only ponder, guess at best.
