ABC Wednesday : Z is for Zen


Someone gave me the book Zen and the art of the Internet almost 20 years ago which makes it ancient history in internet terms.

The first time I saw this cat at the NC Botanical Garden at UNC I thought there was something rather zen about him.

Then zooming ahead to exactly one year later when I saw him at almost the same spot in the garden, lying down, I thought it was a little spooky.

A little later he let me know he let me know he was capable of zeal when attacking an itch.

I remember reading Zen and the art of the motorcycle, and like how Zen can be attached to any activity, - even blogging.

Cats and kangaroos are masters of Zen.

What a cute cat. I had to chuckle at his cute antics.

Well done! That cat is definitely Zen-ish.

What a clever Zen post. And the cat shots are great. He...or she looks like a calm and serene feline who loves life. I, too, got a big smile from this post. G

I like the Botanical Gardens cat, Carver.
I'm so old I remember "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" but I never had a motorcycle. Zen and the internet might have been a bigger help.
Thanks for an interesting post (everything is better with a cat in it).

I've never heard of that book, but it must be fun to read. A zen cat, to be sure!

Isn't it funny how cats do that? I have two photos of a cat in Hawaii taken a year apart sitting on exactly the same step as the year before.

He is adorable, so nice to see your pictures!
I think we could learn about to be zen with our kitties! :)
Luna is very calm!
