“There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.” – Albert Schweitzer
Don’t worry. This isn’t a post about my love of cats. Friends have already started labelling me the “crazy cat lady,” and I’m not ashamed, but I don’t feel the need to convince my readers of how wonderful they are.
The other day an author and I were discussing our work schedules and the need to be flexible. He said, “We must be agile cats,” and the phrase resonated with me and moved me to write.
Stretch your weary, heavy limbs
Your mind most of all
In your cleverness, cunning
Jump without regard for fear
On the morsels
That bring light
Disdain that which does not entertain
Rest your weary, heavy limbs
See, smell, listen
