Well, this isn’t exactly the quote I was hoping for to go with the picture of a crab spider. But I like the Gary Larsen-ish whimsy in this spider’s-eye(s) view of life.
“Our egos tells us we’re the only ones that have any kind of feelings. We’re the only ones with a relationship. We’re the only ones with family. You know, I think that if you kill a spider, there is a relationship that you’re ruining. There’s a conversation going on outside with the other spiders. ‘Did you hear about Chris?….Killed yeah….Sneaker. And now Stephanie has nine hundred babies to raise all alone. Well, she’s got her legs full I’ll tell you that right now. Chris was so kind, wouldn’t hurt a fly. It’s just been tough for them lately. They just lost their web last week. Those humans think they’re so smart. Let them try shooting silk out of their butt and see what they can make.”Â Ellen DeGeneres
But hey: I’m actually getting something done, writing-wise, this morning!
Completely free of distractions or roadblocks to progress, I’m totally honed in on the task at hand, fully focused on my mission and objectives. Nothing can stand in my way…NOTHING!
…er, except maybe incoming emails, pointless browser rambles, blog posts about spiders that somehow intrude out of nowhere…Doh! But damn the torpedoes–full (or at least half) speed ahead! (Hmmm. Wonder where that nautical quote is from. Let’s see here…)
