Fleeting observations, very short stories, brief histories, and amazing tales of derring-do.
The meaning of cat is knowing what you want, knowing how to get it and knowing when to be content when you get it and when there might be something better worth wanting next.
I don't know, I have to consult the tribe, and ponder this...in order to reply in the most cat like way - focused and with intent.
These are the thoughts that wake me up in the night.
Coop, they wake me up during the day, too.K, any word from the tribe yet? They'll probably have to convene a special session of parliament. Okay, Sarah, have you and Puck been talking behind my back?
This is from the script to Act One of my Broadway musical, coincidentally, about the meaning of Cat:PRINCESSForgive me. I am overwhelmed. What is the lesson about?HERMOCRATESMeaning. (she looks at him) And the meaning of meaning. Does meaning reside principally in A) appellation, B) sentient self-regard, or C) material immanence? (He looks at her and is distracted) Yes. Well. Example. Is a cat a cat because I call it so? Not here kitty kitty, mind you, but C A T qua signifier. (She looks at him admiringly –he’s distracted yet again.) Or is it a cat because it says so? Meow Meow. I am cat. Cat I am. Or is it a cat when a furry quadruped rubs against my legs, its silky coat begging to be stroked--crying out for meaning in its loneliness--never coming when I call--that is, epistemologically speaking, the quintessence of catness--utter catiosity. I am losing my mind.
Puck and I would like tickets to this show, please.
