Never, never, never give up

Every night this little spider builds its web between a verandah post and a wind chime.

Every day, the web is damaged. Sometimes the wind chime stretches it beyond its limits; sometimes a bird will fly through it.

We thought the spider would find a more stable place to live.


But the verandah light attracts plenty of insects. Some of them don’t make it to the light and the spider eats.

So, every night, it rebuilds.

Don’t you wish you could approach your daily grind with the endless optimism of this spider?
