Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Flow


“Tabby, what are you staring at?”

“Mrs. Human, do not disturb, I am brick watching.”

“Doing what?”

“It is an advanced method of wall watching.”

“But I don’t understand, the bricks are just sitting there, not moving, so nothing will happen.”

“Nothing has to happen. They are flowing with the motions.”

“What motions?”

“The motions of bricks of course. Mrs. Human you do ask stilly questions, one of those human symptoms I suppose.”

“I do not see anything flowing in the bricks.”

“Of course you don’t, because you are a human. In the book of Bastet, chapter 399, verse 203 and a half it says “when you have watched the wall, you must watch the bricks”. and I have watched the wall so now I am on level 2, brick watching.”

“I see, is that some sort of feline test?”

“Felines do not have tests, we can do it all. It is in the whiskers Mrs. Human. We absorb so much from the watching of the wall, that we must go on, and observing the bricks that form the wall is the next level. It all flows together eventually.”

“So what happens when you have watched the wall and the bricks. What is the next level.”

“You really do not want to know Mrs. Human. It is a secret in the dark pages of the book of Bastet.”

“Perhaps you watch the stones?”

“The stones? Are you completely out of your human head Mrs. Human? If I could laugh I would, but we felines are unable to laugh, it is superfluous. It goes without saying that stones are stones. No self-respecting feline would waste time watching stones.”

“So you watch walls and bricks.”

“As one of our great feline philosophers said “The meaning of watching walls is not to be discovered only after death in some hidden, mysterious realm; on the contrary, it can be found by watching the bricks that create the wall and by living in the here and now as fully and creatively as we can. But beware, do not watch the stones, they will crumble and fall and the foundations will fail.”.”

“Who said that Tabby?”

“I cannot remember, but I added the last sentence about the stones myself, inspired by the senseless comments you made about stones. Mrs. Human, you should watch a wall or a brick and then you will know why we felines do not watch stones.”

“Tabby I aim confused.”

“Humans are strange creatures, they have no normal logic.”

  1. I do not watch bricks, but I watch. I stare at things. Garry thinks I’m weird, but I stare at them until I understand something that’s troubling me. Tell Tabby I get it. Keep watching those bricks. Eventually, he’ll know “it.” All of “it.”

    • I stare at stuff, but don’t realise that I am doing it, because I am probably sunk in some sort of philosophical thought programme, like what shall I get for dinner. I think Tabby already knows it, but she wants to know more. She sees things that I do not see probably.
