Moving house


Not much walking this month. Just in the house. Moving. 27 years. 13 rooms.  Up down, up down. Living room, bed. Loft, heavy, memories, weight, stuff, so much stuff. Loaded. The garden, the plants, my babies. Covid. The dreaded. Bed. Walk in my head. Proxy walks. Last rounds. The wood. The familiar. No wood to come. Up down. Living room. Kitchen. Loft. Shed. Dining room. Bedroom. Another. Another. The more goes. The less it is mine. One more walk. Round it all. That is it. The movers turn the drive corner.

Cats aren’t known for clomping around like Clydesdales; they’re stealthy. That’s why cat-footing refers to walking that’s more subtle and graceful than that of the average oaf. In Harry L. Wilson’s 1916 book Somewhere in Red Gap, this word appears in characteristic fashion: “…I didn’t yell any more. I cat-footed. And in a minute I was up close.” Cat-footing is a requirement for a career as a cat burglar. Credits to Mark Peters.
