Reflections, Day 75
Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
I guess it’s a video that’s looped back into itself. It ran a pretty long time.
The setting is a back yard with grass and different kinds of bird-friendly objects. Someone has sprinkled peanuts all over the place and the video shows these black birds (maybe grackles?) and squirrels competing for the treats.
The cats found the video playing and sat patiently watching for a while. At one point Trouble tried to catch one of the birds. Lightning stopped watching to go around and see if there was an opening in the rear. I thought that was pretty cool.
We laughed as we watched the cats watching their “TV.”
And then, I realized,
We’re not much different when we sit in front of a television set waiting for one of those birds to escape and fly out of that box on the wall.
The cats are very patient.
