still a bit foggy

Still part of the Face Rock legend… these are the kittens the Indian princess tossed out to sea when the monster tried to grab her. I can actually see the kitten ears from this angle…. (this is the same wispy fog from a previous post of the Indian princess, but I’m still a bit fascinated with the layers of fog and clouds rolling in from the sea).bandon-6674I wanted the past to go away, I wanted
to leave it, like another country; I wanted
my life to close, and open
like a hinge, like a wing, like the part of the song
where it falls
down over the rocks: an explosion, a discovery;
I wanted
to hurry into the work of my life; I wanted to know,

whoever I was, I was

for a little while.

    • Yes, I think we have some large pussy cats up in the mountains. Much bigger than the Florida puma. 😀
      According to Wikipedia, our cougar is “the second heaviest cat in the New World, after the jaguar.”


  1. This is one of the first Coast peoples legends I have read, fascinating. Contemporary, with the cats coming from the French.
    I like the low lens of fog lying on the rocks, it adds fullness to the impression of faces.
