Lines of speech bounce back and forth between us, not a word said means all that much, the word heard perhaps means even less. As is everything, this is all of one moment, in that one moment, what I have to say about my cat and it’s love of a laser and what you have to say about yours and it’s cucumber-caused terror isn’t so significant. But beyond that moment, in these hours and days beyond, I think about that cat, it makes me smile.
