I have been watching Max closely. It has occurred to me that he can teach me a thing or two while I am in my Period of Great Introspection and perhaps it is not only chance that has thrown us together.
Here is a list of his qualities~ the ones I admire most.
Happy to drink bath water
Self-contained and self-assured
Affectionate in a way that is measured, serene and never needy
He is also a no nonsense Country Kitty who is content to sleep in the garden all day.
Max is what I would call 'Self-Actualised'.
When the student is ready the teacher will appear.
Max, I dig you. I really do. Thank you for putting up with me. xx
