Arachno-Capitalism: When a web of people form the

words “some pig”…or something like that.

“Do you understand how there could be any writing in a spider’s web?”

“Oh, No,” said Dr. Dorian. “I don’t understand it. But for that matter I don’t understand how a spider learned to spin a web in the first place. When the words appeared, everyone said they were a miracle. But nobody pointed out that the web itself is a miracle.”

“What’s miraculous about a spider’s web?” said Mrs. Arable. “I don’t see why you say a web is a miracle-it’s just a web.”

“Ever try to spin one?” asked Dr. Dorian.”

― E.B. White, Charlotte’s Web

It is not easy spinning a web but the results are always “terrific” and “radiant”.

We are hopeful our web, the Lumbery, will be ready in early September when “These autumn days will shorten and grow cold. The leaves will shake loose from the trees and fall.” Until then we will keep spinning, making connections and sending out words to inspire, just like Charlotte.
