More Forage

I wish this blog came with Smell-O-Vision.

You know how it feels to breathe in — No.   Words fail me.  I wish I could find a way to breathe into you how I felt, taking this picture.  Standing there wet-footed, in this cool, fresh morn.  Let me say it again.  Cool.  Cool.  Rain.

I would wax rhapsodic.

I would see paradise in a puddle.

And then, on my way back in the door, I see this:

More forage.

Is it alive?

Why yes!  It moved!

Thunder!  From the South?

From the East?

Back to business.

I know how to get Mr. Stick out.  It’s easy.


Notice how calm I am.  How do I do it?


[Editor’s Note:  Plus, Mr. Stick is a lot slower on the jump than Mr. Grasshopper was.]

The End.

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.

    Wonderful photos. I love the extra alert stance when assessing the thunder. Such a fine looking hunter!

      Isn’t he just. And isn’t it just wonderful that he stands UP at thunder — when, before at the first rumblings, he used to make himself into spaghetti-cat and slither away into the depths of the hell-room, not to be seen for hours. This confidence really makes me happy.

  2. Bugs,
    That is a fine power stance you have. And your Bean might be better than we thought — serving you tasty moving morsels under glass?! I’m stuck with a crazy vegan pacifist. Can I come visit?

  3. Crunch…crunch…yummy Mr. Stick! How clever of your bean to give you a mental challenge before your tasty reward!! I’ve seen plenty of grasshoppers up close and “too” personal, but never a stick bug.

    Bugs has such focus! I’m very intrigued to hear that the stress stopper essence seems to be working. I might like to have some on-hand for when someone is being a spaz around here… And I will take some of that healing rain energy, thank you very much!

  5. nadbugs says:

    Oh I really encourage you to get some (well, I’m sending you the rain; I mean the spirit-essence). Especially after the week you’ve had.

  6. Eleanor says:

    Looking fine and handsome as always there, Bugs.

  7. Jaime says:

    Those photos are comical. I think Jackson needs to use that one to sell his product!

  8. nadbugs says:

    Bugs’s publicist agrees totally. She put up this post on his FaceBook page — and he answered! He liked the post — but so far the publicist hasn’t heard back from his people about the paid endorsement deal. Time will tell.
