Turn them tears into cheers

“I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
An if each and all be aware I sit content.
One world is aware, and by the far the largest to me, and that
is myself,
And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand
or ten million years,
I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness,
I can wait.”


–   Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

And the turtles, of course…all the turtles are free, as turtles and, maybe, all creatures should be.

“There is a tiger in my room,’ said Frances.
‘Did he bite you?’ said Father.
‘No,’ said Frances.
‘Did he scratch you?’ said Mother.
‘No,’ said Frances.
‘Then he is a friendly tiger,’ said Father. ‘He will not hurt you. Go back to sleep.”

Russell Hoban, Bedtime for Frances

Theory 6:  When a cat is dropped, it always lands on its feet. When toast is dropped, it always lands with the buttered side facing down. Thus, if buttered toast is strapped to the back of a dropped cat, the two will hover, spinning inches above the ground.
