This is Stuart, the neighborhood cat. He technically lives (i.e. gets food) a couple of houses down, but really, he lives where he, himself, lives; does his thing where he gets it done; and sleeps where he sleeps – in this case, my porch, which happens to be in his territorial patrol. He always has a friendly word and is amenable to a quick head scratching. And then he’s on his way again – sometimes back on patrol, sometimes to cat dreamland.
I think he sets a good PR example: do your own thing, in harmony with your environment and community, in a non-overbearing way that’s confident and content yet friendly. That’s something we all can aspire toward.
What do you think? Ever learned or observed a broader concept from an animal or pet of your own? Let us hear from you in the comments.
I think I’ve figured out why I’m so fascinated with the Hipstamatic Rock BW-11 film and John S. Lens. Remember those “ghost hunter” television shows where they would use some sort of special film or photography to document a spirit? I’ve always been fascinated by such, and that’s what it feels like I’m doing with this equipment, because there’s such a mysterious element to the results you get with Hipstamatic. It’s not just a filter — each snapshot is a unique reaction to the amount of light, movement, or other elements in the frame. Either that, or my cat Lily just might be on to something when she follows light on the ceiling… what we refer to as “Hunting Ceiling Ghosts.”
