Paw

Mountain Lion
A long time ago, I had a great fall.  It hurt like something I had never dreamt before.  Little did I know what I was searching for all along, was me.  A cat.  For a long time, I thought it was a dog, but it is, indeed, a cat.  A beautiful cat with four legs, a wagging tail, and a certain type of silence that penetrates the mysterious veil of thunder.
