“The creative process might be simplified if we stopped searching for ideas and simply made room for them to visit…” Robert Grudin

And so enter Gertrude. Well, there was no way that I could keep her out for much longer. She is a dream breaker. She gets your attention and snaps you out of the deepest trance. She wants you to be part of the moment and nowhere else. In sum, cats break trances with ‘their’ dances and direct non-negotiable communications, especially at meal time. I try not to be charmed by her, but it is difficult. She would spring out of the photo if she could and cat-ch you, too.
Gertrude wins the day! Welcome in Gertrude: people will love you here, too, and want to know just what you are about… there is no dog or cat or person who will get the better of her. She is part of the equation of existence whether we like it or not. Oh, you cat of cats!
P.S.: If you are curious, see how Gertrud ‘springs’ out all over the place and join the fun here. How many times does she appear unexpectedly? Curiosity hasn’t killed this cat….. yet!
