Not-Knowingness; Love; Conversing With Bugs

So let’s go back to where we left off, before that last Magical-Mystery-Tour post.

Bugs had let go of the claw-launch wake-up game, apparently agreeing to find other ways to amuse himself.

But, still, if I got any closer to him than around five feet, he was of a mind to walk away.

Enter Teresa of TTouch.

(By the way, I checked with Teresa about the “Mother Teresa” bit.  She graciously afforded me the freedom to say whatever I want on my own blog.  But I could tell that comparing her to a Nobel prizewinner didn’t quite work for her.  I wanted the moniker to convey my admiration and gratitude, but her ease of mind is more important to me.  Hence, let me try to go back to forensic-reporting mode.  That way you can make up your own mind and my hype will take up less of your bandwidth.  I’ll just call her Saint Teresa of TTouch.)

 One last time before we embark on the specifics, it may be helpful to take stock of what we do and don’t know at this point.

What we (probably) know (with a fair degree of certainty) about Bugs and me at this point:

He comes from predator stock

And male predator stock at that

He was young and bursting with joi de vivre, energy, curiosity, and verve

My small house posed challenges in the territory department.  I.e., too small for full free expression of his joi de vivre, energy, curiosity, and verve

I loved him with every inch of my being (still do; always will).

As to what I was clueless about:

What Bugs was thinking.

How to negotiate with him, in any way other than complete freak-out on my part

Now I’m ready to talk about Teresa of TTouch.

About nadbugs

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.
