Mouse show

The cat is warming up slowly to his new life. I'm still not decided on a name. Maybe "Teacher." Maybe "Hairy." He ventures forth by just inches each day. He sleeps on the floor near my bed. Last night he jumped on the bed and sat at the far end near my toes for ten delicate minutes.

He is too shy to play with me, so I just put on mouse shows, which he seems to enjoy. His tail swishes back and forth wildly, but he does not pounce. When I go downstairs, there is a delay, and then I hear him upstairs jumping and scampering and attacking the play mice.

The parallel with my inner artist is so strong. A lot of people ask me to draw on demand, people also ask me to illustrate their children's books. I just can't function when people are watching or expecting. It's like my hand turns to wood. I want to have such a free hand that I can draw whatever and whenever. But for now I am much more like this cat, staying close to where it is safe. I must continue to clear space and provide gentle, loving encouragement.
