I wondered what others would make of the cat examples. I tried to clarify to some degree where I was going with them but deliberately left it for a while in hopes that each would consider the examples on their own – within the context of their experiences and within their understanding of the words (language). I assume the context of this blog was not lost on most so that must have also limited the meanings to be had. I imagine some thought the cat was meant to represent women, or racial differences, or social structures, or choice or interconnections/dependence… you know, they are but one of countless favours and should mean whatever it was meant to mean for you.
I’ve prepared some lunch for us so please excuse me while I step out one more time. Feel free to flip through the pages of the book on the table while you wait. I will be back shortly.
