Like a Cat

In the course of getting over my bike injury, I've had to learn a new routine. Instead of staying at the same task -- usually on the computer -- for hours on end, I rotate between a number of locations, each of which puts my left foot at a different angle. Today I realized that I was behaving like a cat, devoted to the specificity of certain places, but also open to integrating new ones into the rotation, as some become less comfortable or more tedious. I'm starting to think that this might be a method, not just for healing the body, but strengthening the mind.
