Miss Clover in position (Click picture for larger view)
"If a fish is the movement of water embodied, given shape, then cat is a diagram and pattern of subtle air." ~ Doris Lessing (Persian born British Novelist and short-story Writer b.1919I personally don't know anything about yoga and my only brush with transcendental meditation was via my "ex" talking about levitation and flying and, well, you just had to be there. However, when I saw Miss Clover in this pose (position), I thought "Hmmm! Has she been sneaking out to yoga class or has she been doing research on the yoga positions on the internet?" Thinking it was absurd for a cat to be able to do this, I decided to check it out and to my amazement, I found books in print for sale.....
Yes these are real and can be purchased at your local Barnes & Noble or from Amazon.com. I know that Bonnie and Vicki have experience with yoga, perhaps they can tell us the name of Clover's position. I personally think it is closely related to the position held by the cat on the cover of the green book. I wonder what Clover thinks about while holding this position? "You're annoying me." "Not the camera again!" Maybe she thinks what Ellen does:
"I was in yoga the other day. I was in full lotus position. My shockras were all aligned. My mind is all cleared of all shatter and I'm looking out of my third eye and everything that I'm supposed to be doing. It's amazing what comes up, when you sit in that silence. "Mama keeps whites bright like the sunlight, mama's got the magic of chlorox two." ~ Ellen DeGeneresBe sure to visit Friday's Ark today and Carnival of the Cats this week hosted by Where the Dolphins Play. Hey! Maybe some other cats do yoga too!! (end of post)
