This is actually a quote from the 1993 film The Assassin (aka Point of No Return) starring Bridget Fonda, Anne Bancroft and Gabriel Byrne.
This particular post is nothing to do with hired professional killers though.
One of my very earliest posts was about spiders.
Today as I sat in the car whilst Hubby went inside the shop to get us both a sugar fix, I watched in fascination a tiny money spider walking along the top rim of the open window .
Every so often, it would raise it’s abdomen, and then continue on its journey. When it got to the end of the glass, it did a kind of bungee jump before swinging back onto the window and working its way along the way it had just come.
Half way across, it stopped, raised its backside two or three times, then turned round and headed towards the edge of the door again.
I’m a bit slow on the uptake sometimes, so it took a little while to realize it was spinning a web, and it wasn’t until Hubby came back and we reversed out of the parking space that I could see the delicate strands of its efforts, the foundations for a full intricate web.
I am not a fan of spiders, but at least I don’t have a panic attack at the sight of a little one now.
On our early morning walks, we have seen hedgerows, trees, moss and gorse adorned with webs bejeweled by dew.
