GOSSAMER THREADS

Human beings are a lot like spiders. Humans, like spiders, spin out their webs to survive. Some webs are built as barriers for protection. Other webs are built to catch other people for the success of their self promoting plans. Humans are often ” A Noiseless Patient Spider.” by Walt Whitman. More coming on this subject. I have found that politicians are the perfect spiders, a rare poisonous breed.

A Noiseless Patient Spider– Walt Whitman.

A noiseless patient spider, I mark’d where on a little promontory it stood isolated, Mark’d how to explore the vacant vast surrounding, it launched forth filament, filament, filament, out of itself, Ever unreeling them, ever tirelessly speeding them.

And you O my soul where you stand, Surrounded, detached, in meaningless oceans of space, Ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing, seeking the spheres to connect them, Till bridge you need be form’d, till the ductile anchor hold, Till the gossamer thread you fling catch somewhere, O my soul. Frankie The Earthman.

“Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars.” David Bowie, the genius.
