Very nice one again NP.Though if he spun his web into a portrait of himself, I would think he was a bit self absorbed.
He's just doing his thing, immersed in the experience, unencumbered by regret or expectation.
When we consider others, it is not always to their benefit....
yup! I have the cow spiders that will be here soon enough, usually 3 and I love to watch them spin! xoxoox
np, you are getting so tricky...:-)
Egotistical? No. Egocentric? Yes. A spider has to be in order to live. How nice that my life affords me the ability to look beyond finding my next meal.
You got a nice web man! O I beg your pardon, I meant spider-man....:):)
Great saying, NP! Are we the web we build, or the being who builds.
I recently watched this rogue spider come crawling into our resident spider's web and I thought ...How nice.....then he got closer and closer...and I thought maybe they're going to mate or something....and them 'Wallop" he eats our spider wraps him up and then builds an even bigger web........is there a moral in this I thought?........maybe it is best to be absorbed but not too self-absorbed so you don't that predator sidling up to you! Spot on as usual Marty.Cheers,Neil
There's a metaphor somewhere about webs and websites and interwebs?
A lovely balanced view of what we could attain if we were truly absorbed in fulfilling our life's purpose. Busy, but not too. Involved, but in the right ways. Fulfilled in doing what needs doing, finding the joy of balancing ours and others' needs.
I like the imagery of the spider weaving her web (Charlotte!), very busily absorbed in her work, but still able to direct her gaze outside of herself and her own web.
Loved this some! So simple yet so deep...
If self-absorbed, would he be caught in his own web?
