The State of Things

For Carrie’s Sunday Muse BlogSpot. http://thesundaymuse.blogspot.com/2019/11/sunday-muse-80.html

 

The State of Things
“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat. “I don’t much care where—” said Alice. “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.    The Cheshire Cat from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll.

The Human has become the Cheshire Human,
disappearing,
becoming invisible,
intanglible.
Blinking in and out of consciousness.

The Cheshire Cat has become the Tabby Cat
gazing into the future
and really not caring at all.

    An interesting twist on Alice’s Adventures. Perhaps, human are becoming more intangible as they delve deeper into the electronic world. Coming and going and some completely disappear.

    I had a couple cats once. (It takes at least two to make a decent barbecue…)

    It often feels as if it doesn’t matter if we’re coming or going these days. I like what you’ve done here. 🙂

    Love the direction of this, Toni. Humans are disappearing, but cats are very much visible, not scattered about.
