Walk Like A Cat




Just a reminder that I have a very lovely new book out! Here's a sneak peek. Click here to get it via Amazon or let me know by email (runawaysentence at gmail) if you want to buy a signed copy directly from me. Meanwhile, I’m giving myself a break for a day or two after the frenzy that was 30 Poems In November.

  8. Very pretty, Marian. I sometimes with that I had the many lives that a cat is supposed to walk.

    When I saw the title and was hearing the reading I was remembering of a seminary professor's talk about Ephesians 5, verse 15: " See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,". He said to imagine a cat walking on a stone ledge with glass shards embedded in cement along the top. I.e. very carefully fulfill your Christian walk.

    Verse 16 completes the thought, " Redeeming the time, because the days are evil." Now every time I read those passages I see this cat walking so carefully.

  9. thanks, Jim, and everyone, for your lovely comments.
    what i think is funny about this video is all the cursing in it. which i didn't really think about until i was reading it... my kids are standing in front of me and i'm thinking, huh, well that's some curse words, right there. hee hee!
    if you are interested, i have a bunch of other videos on the runawaysentence youtube channel. you can get to it through this video, or click on the youtube icon over the right.
