As I was looking out my window this morning I was captivated by a lovely spider web! What skill it must take to make such a thing of beauty! I actually then noticed three more in my yard, but they weren't in good spots to be photographed. However I did manage to get a couple nice shots of the first one I saw and I've posted those photos on my photo of the day page. As I was thinking about this lovely start to my day I also pondered a post from dailycupoftao where the author states: The most advanced alien life, say a dolphin, lion, garden shrub, bacteria, fly, rat; all are actually as well advanced as every other. Only the human, feeling advanced with its tools, is in folly due to the wish to explain itself, where every other just is. I thought just how true that is and that the beauty of the spider is that the spider is just being, not trying to explain anything, not figuring that it is somehow better than every other species on the planet, not doing anything to justify itself. The spider just is and how wondrous that is!
