Talking to the cats and feeling good. World is warming back up to thirty outside our window. Snow on the ground has gained an icy veneer. “All that’s okay, but the wind,” the cats say, “listen to that wind. Feel that wind. We don’t like the wind.”
“You’re alright, floofdudes. The wind is outside and you’re inside.”
“You sure? Because listen to those hisses, whispers, and howls.”
“Yep, we’re okay? Feel the heat? Have a treat. Don’t you worry ’bout a thing.”
And there it was, Steve Wonder’s lovely reminder, “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing” (1974), a perfect song to release some tensions by singing aloud and dancing with your floofs.
