Still Point – Only the Dance

Bowing back to known and unknown Friends. This little cat with paws folded has captured my heart, offer her your thoughts since she is struggling right now.

At the still point of the turning world.
Neither flesh nor fleshless.
Neither from nor towards.
At the still point, there the dance is.
But neither arrest nor movement.
And do not call it fixity.
Where past and future are gathered.
Neither movement from no Towards.
Neither ascent nor decline.
Except for the point, the still point
There would be no dance,
and there is only the dance.


Thank you for your support of my ‘going on’. Thank you to all those who have sent cards, wrote emails, left FB comments and ‘likes’. At present, I’m ‘going on’ as the cook for around a month so I am not able to respond individually.

  1. Thank you for this beauty. Sending love to all struggling cats. ( My Alfie is struggling too)

  2. Thank you for Eliot’s reminder Mugo, this ‘point’ becomes more appropriate with the slowing cycle of ageing, I’ve found.

  3. This cat has an amazing “presence.” I hope that she feels embraced and supported by all the love and merit being sent her way.
