Play Date With Frog

It’s been raining a lot lately, so look who turned up on the Catio.

Did you invite him, ma?

I wonder what would happen if I do this.

Whereupon Mr. Frog gave a mighty leap to the chair.

Bugs ponders his next move.

The only possible response:

Mr. Frog’s response was to flatten himself down into a micron-thin puddle. I’ve never seen such a flattened frog.

You just never know about the frogs around here. Some of them are poisonous.* So I ushered Mr. Frog outside the Catio into the great outdoors. Where Mr. Frog could carry on being a frog without further interference from this quarter.

*I could have misidentified the frog in the previous post as a Fowler’s toad. Orange legs . . .

. . . suggest it might have been a Cope’s gray tree frog.

No frogs were harmed in the making of this post.

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.

  1. We have frogs…actually we think they are toads…around here, too. But we’ve never had the chance to play with one.

    How fun! We don’t get frogs around here – it’s too dry. We don’t even get toads.

    The owl and the pussycat went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat….. sing along everyone!

    My sister just moved to Charleston, and her cats have staring contests with the lizards on the porch. Not quite frogs but I love cat shenanigans!

  5. Bugs and Frogs! Entertainment all around the catio!
