"Begin at the beginning,and go on till you come to the end: then stop." (Lewis Carroll, 1832-1896)

Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked."Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat."I don't know," Alice answered."Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

"So long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation. "Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."

"All right," said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone. "Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin," thought Alice; "but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!"

I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe. Like Arthur Dent from "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy", if you do not have a Babel Fish in your ear this blog will be completely unintelligible to you and will read something like this: "boggle, google, snoggle, slurp, slurp, dingleberry to the power of 10". Fortunately, those who have had the Babel Fish inserted in their ear, will understood this blog perfectly. If you are familiar with this technology, you will know that the Babel Fish lives on brainwave radiation. It excretes energy in the form of exactly the correct brainwaves needed by its host to understand what was just said; or in this case, what was read. The Babel Fish, thanks to scientific research, reverses the problem defined by its namesake in the Tower of Babel, where a deity was supposedly inspired to confuse the human race by making them unable to understand each other.

The Puma

I see the bells around his ankles
barefooted he moves
the lizard tattoo dances on his foot in clouds of dust.

Sweat trickles down his chest
brown hands on the djembe beat his power song
it takes him to the edge.

He knows the strength of man
but keeps a woman's care
he is the gentle one, yet he is warrior.

He breathes the ancient wisdoms
but walks in this world
he is the learned one, yet he is child.

He speaks the language of feathers and stones
and shares his dreamings with them
the leaves write his name.

He flows as a river with the Tao
and knows the strength in weakness
the I Ging whispers his future.

He is father sun
as I am sister moon
Wakan Tanka watches us.

He is pirate brother
as I am pirate sister
Gaia laughs with us.

He pads softly around me
watching me sleep
his presence in the dark warms me.

He sends me the light in the eyes
as he strokes my hair token
I hear him call me.

He is bewildered, I do not answer
though I remember his touch
and his scent of honey and wild cedar.

He is the Puma, as I am,
to each other we taste like home
The Wheel of Time smiles on us.
