well. imagine my horror when I discovered a 'half-post'. I had thought my text had posted with my puss image...dearie me...any goo...lets continue as if that massive technological blunder did not occur...
Felix....And the Wonders of Perseverance with Small Things.
This small feline has taught me some important lessons. To watch a cat stalk its prey is a fascinating thing.
In Felix's case, it is the common housefly. Imagine my shock to find a gnawed hole in my fly screen window, apparently growing in size, thereby letting in The Great Australian Fly....a summer wonder, in and of themselves...
We have witnessed firsthand, Felix stalking them - complete with bum wiggling, pouncing, catching between paws and finally, crunching on his prey with great relish.
This had me thinking...could he have made this hole larger, knowing these creatures gained entry via this portal?
I had thought he clawed and bit at it regularly to escape out into the Big World...perhaps instead he slowly but surely worked a large enough gap to corral the flies indoors, knowing if he waited long enough, these small moments of entertainment would come to him....if he was patient....if he waited....
I likened this to my developing practice. Maybe its a case of from little things big things grow, or at least the occasional small thing can be a wondrous bonus...a by product, if you like, of the sometimes fraught journey as creator.
Everything has purpose. Even sitting, waiting .....patiently.....
