“Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read, build the products you want to use, do the work you want to see done.” Austin Kleon

Don’t f#ck with cats.

Most of us

When we receive feedback . . arch our back

like a cat waiting to pounce.

Or flee.

We rumble it against all that we know to be true

about ourselves.

We are clever, worldly and learn-ed in our

own eyes

and they are open.

But some cats hesitate.

They turn back to you with questioning eyes.

They too have the instinctual desire

to scratch or flee or fight

but they resist.

Instead asking how is that true

from what you are seeing here?

Or perhaps kinship in it’s most feline form

How might that be true

from where you stand?

Their reaction most likely depends

on whether they believe that

the world likes cats.

Or doesn’t.

But all cats

big and small

were kittens once

and can be again.

If that interests them.
