Spiders of the world wide web…

We dance on strands made of words and ideas… we cast about ourselves a nebulous web of that which we hold most dear, and then perch upon the gleaming, silken filaments… we hope to lure others to see the beauty of that which we have constructed, to entangle them in our dreams and our visions…

We lie in wait for that which we most need… seeking solace and comfort, friendship and connection, validation and purpose… for the void below is so deep and so vast and distance cloaks the mysteries that lie under our tenuous creations…

In the beginning, we dangle from one thin line… at the mercy of the winds of doubt… looking for a point at which to anchor ourselves… and then one thin thread joins another… and another… and the web takes shape…

We cling to our woven sanctuaries made of nothing but our thoughts… each so thin, so fine, as to defy description… but together forming the net that holds us above nothingness… and there is strength there… the awesome strength of the design of nature… but there is loneliness too…

The web is both home and trap… for to keep us safe without providing us with sustenance is but half of its purpose… what good the long hours of patient toil… if no prey is lured to its shimmering tendrils… what use the golden orb if it hangs unheeded in the darkness?

Cast your web.
