Relationships


"Man is a knot, a web, a mesh into which relationships are tied. Only those relationships matter."

--Antoine de Saint-Exupery

  1. Considering everything that happens in life, this is a perfect way of describing relationships with others.

  2. I love Saint-Exupery so much.

    If this is true, my web lies crumpled on the grass, abandoned long ago...

  3. I believe that the threads are still there, even if sometimes they are on the ground or even invisible for a time. The web is always reconstructed, albeit in a different form. In time, even the crumpled webs are replaced by those with even more beautiful patterns. Just wait and see.

  5. You are most welcome, of course. :-) My mother always says, "Where there's life, there's hope." And, thanks be to God, there is so much good ahead. In keeping with the web theme, as Charlotte said to Wilbur, "Chin up." :-)
