Mr Kukku has his finger on the pulse.

Here is a soothing image to look at while we try to raise the enthusiasm to update the site.

The cat’s name is Kukku and he lives in Japan. We see him here keeping the planet spinning on its axis.

It is not well known among humans that cats keep us from careening out of control into the icy outer reaches of space and prevent matter from just plain falling to bits. What humans take to be the idle staring of cats is in fact a deep Zen-like trance that animates the universe. Cats have complex international psychic networks in which individuals take turns to concentrate on the collective task.

To you and me it’s staring out the window looking smug and twitching a tail. In reality it is life itself.

I for one have volunteered my services. I would like to participate in the great feline network. I too will stare at nothing and contemplate the essential ness-ness of everything.

Later. I’ve got a windowsill to see to.
