Hungry Harold

February 7, 2011


I have been watching a little spider in an open window. A friendly spider. As it has been winter, so there are fewer flies and bugs for Harold (I named him Harold) to eat. I found a baby fly swimming around in water and grabbed him for Harold. That kept him for a few days. Then I found a dying bee and put it in his web. Gone within minutes.

Then, wind and cold: no bugs at all. What did he do? He made his web MUCH bigger. Hmm, very smart spider. This little event seemed to transcend itself by saying: When you need something, make your web bigger; you’re sure to catch something. A “need” and what the definition of one’s “web” is will change from person to person and from time to time. We all have a little bit of Harold in us.
