Why am I talking about this? Mainly because I need a new post up for my blog. Yeah, I know. All of you will be around for as long as I need you to be despite posting nothing new, ready to eagerly come and read whatever I toss up. I need to take as much time as I need to get my life settled in with the new baby. And so on and so forth....
But I felt the need to post something. I'm not saying it's worthy enough to post. But it's just something that came to mind recently.
I was feeding my dear Overlord (Jaquline is one month old today. Many birthday wishes! And MLGF has a birthday today too. Go give him big kisses and any instruments you play for a fun birthday jam session over at his place).
Anyway I was feeding dear Overlord while staring at this.
And this blog post came to mind concerning perceptions. What one person sees could be totally different than what another person will see. YOU might see a stuffed animal with a plastic bag on its head in front of a plant. Do you want to know what I saw before taking this photo...
A cat in a chef's hat
A cat wearing a bonnet
A cooking cat wearing a hair net like those lunch ladies in school cafeterias
A cat with a brain-sucking alien host parasite. These parasites plan to control all felines so as to create growling, spitting, clawing war minions around the world to enslave humanity with their cute purring.
These are the things I perceive. Perhaps you see something different. Perhaps, for you, that small writerly voice in your head has tainted your mind's eye to leap into flights of fancy while helping you to create interesting stories from those things you see in your everyday life...
Or perhaps you just see a stuffed animal with a plastic bag on its head.
