Go your own way!

A small path ran up to the main entrance to Mr Midnight’s and Sir Winston’s place of abode.  Across the road directly opposite,  large boulders had been placed in a large half-circle in which to help make the parking bay at the school  look a little nicer.

In warm weather, Mr. Midnight loved to lay on top of the boulders, especially the ones directly opposite his house because he had a great vantage point of what was happening around where he lived. From his vantage point,  Mr Midnight could see  Sir Winston having what looked like  a nap on the porch entrance steps.

Sir Winston must have had some inclination that Mr. Midnight was watching him because he suddenly raised himself from his comfy sitting position on the porch, stretched himself and wandered over towards Mr. Midnight.

DSCN0647       I wonder what Mr. Midnight’s thinking?  I´ll go over and find out.

Sir Winston sprang down the steps, trotted over the garden in a zig-zag fashion, darted behind the garden shed, scurried under the hole in the hedge, raced across the road and after having sniffed around some of the parked cars, he clambered up the slight hill and sat on the boulder next to Mr. Midnight.

MM-Avatar       You took your time didn’t you?

SW-Avatar       Well, I have all the time in the world.  I only came over to find out what you were up to.

MM-Avatar       Nothing much.  I´m having a lazy day.  I was just observing the occasional stranger passing through my territory.

Did you know that Mr. Dog always cuts across the garden when he wishes to visit our house?  He doesn’t use the pathway up to the door.  I don´t know what his master thinks about it all. It’s terribly bad manners you know.

I’ve also noticed that you tend to take a purrrculiar path when you leave and enter the house.  Do you always nip behind the shed with which to get to the main doorway of our house? It seems a lot of messing about. I would have thought you would have taken the easiest path.

SW-Avatar       I like going that way. Nobody else goes that way.

MM-Avatar       I always prefurrr to take what seems to be the lightest path in life – you know, the most direct path.

I’ve observed that Mrs. Squirrel often goes about things from above. She loves going up and down those tall, greeny, bendy things all day. She must have loads of energy.  We cats tend to like lazing all day instead.

SW-Avatar       Yes, she climbs the tree and runs along the guttering to reach the house door.  What a funny creature.

MM-Avatar       Look!   There´s the yellow man.  Which path will he take?

SW-Avatar       That´s a postman Mr. Midnight.  They´re always in a hurry.

MM-Avatar       Look.  He´s carrying that large parcel and look!   He´s making a short cut by crossing daddy´s green stuff  and approaching the house from the other side.

SW-Avatar       I think it´s because of his heavy load.  Daddy is always purchasing postage stamp parcels from his auctions. Poor postman. You have to feel sorry for him don´t you?

The thing I like about our observations is that everyone seems to go about things differently and I must say, that´s quite unusual for human beings.  They don´t really believe in individualism like us cats because they tend to copy one another most of the time.

MM-Avatar       Well I can´t understand why you take the paths in life you sometimes take  Sir Winston but I must say that it is most important for “beings” to go their own way in life.

If you go your own way you will be more balanced and a happier “being”.  So watch out humans.  Get your act together and start believing in yourselves and do what YOU find to be true for yourself.

Go your own way!
