Inside Buddy Foster's World
Long summer days, as I lay on my front step, drowsy with cat food and luxuriating in the sun, I became a flâneur. A rather large and affectatious word for a mere cat, you may be thinking.
A flâneur is an idler or lounger, or as Charles Baudelaire described it, a detached observer of city streets. WordPress’s Daily Post has challenged us to be a flâneur and report back on our findings. Since idling and lounging are perfect occupations for a cat, I have this summer been an excellent flâneur.
My vantage point is my front step from which I can see see vehicles, animals, and humans enter and exit the cul-de-sac opposite my house. I bravely watch them pass, looking at them from the corner of my eye. The lady across the street spends many hours in her garden. I like her garden. It has bushes under which to lie and further observe. Sometimes the ferocious orange cat crosses the street- I watch him carefully for fear he may trespass on my domain. Sasha, the dog across the street, sometimes bark but I ignore him.
Sometimes I practice being a flâneur from my back deck. I watch birds eat from the feeder but my leash prevents a massacre. Once Maverick, the new kitten next door, invaded my yard but I soon scared him away.
Are you a flâneur? Why not try it.
