"A spider's web is stronger than it looks....a web gets torn every day by the insects that kick around in it, and a spider must rebuild it when it gets full of holes." ~E.B. White, Charlotte's Web
It's been 4 days since I almost walked right into it.
I don't know why after swatting it away and destroying its web, four days in a row, it continues to come back to the exact same spot. There has to be something about this place, just outside my garage. Maybe it's the 60 watt lightbulb that draws yummy moths within its reach. Maybe because it can hide its quarter-sized body within the fixture when it rains. Maybe because it enjoys the view or scaring me half to death as I throw out the garbage.
Whatever it is...it is resilient. Each morning, the web seems stronger than the day before and it's as if knows exactly which holes to patch up before the new day begins.
Maybe I can learn a thing or two from it. And so, tonight and as long as it keeps a safe distance, I'll let it stay.
Here's to a good night's sleep for all those rebuilding their webs tonight. 🕸✨ #charlottesweb #bedtime #story #positivevibes #sweetdreams #night #walks #determination #light #spider #web #legs #hanginthere #thestruggleisreal #rebuild #newday #life #throughmylens #photooftheday #writing #stories #blog #nostalgia
