    I see it a lot, maybe not 25 metres but tiny spiders shooting webs to catch the wind in autumn.

    If reality weren't baffling at times,
    it would become an uninteresting place.

    Another wonderful spider documentary....

    I guess the part:
    "That would totally be an awesome age to die."

    I think this spider web reminds me that this is our time and place. Its infinitely variable yet not infinitely durable. No two webs are the same, yet we call them by one word. Into the frost we go and death, and what does a person have that can coexist with God for eternity in the invisible dark? I would be unhappy without physical comforts and light, but these things God lives just fine without and sees without light. What have I got in common? My works when tested with fire will amount to nearly nothing. I am like that web spun upon the spirit to attach to a temporary purchase for a purpose and then recycled.

    Thank you for linking that!

    I hope he’s ok! IDK though, talking about the ages of Chris Farley, John Belushi, and JC when they died, and now Pope was at their age and calling it “an awesome age to die.”

    I feel for him....he’s had a rough life. I wonder what started it all?
    Do you know?

    You are welcome. I missed him too. Seeing the title "amazing world of spiders", I think almost all on RF(who read his posts) think of @PopeADope

    Best you ask him. He might return one day. Life goes in waves. Maybe he has an RF sabbatical. He did write so much, so I would not be surprised.

    It is indeed an intense message. And I really don't know what will happen. I wish @PopeADope all the best; I like him, he is a good guy.
