Life Lesson From Stanley The Cat
Posted on April 25, 2013 by Joy of Living No comments
I recently bought a very cool book called Lessons from Stanley the Cat: Nine Lives of Everyday Wisdom by Jennifer Freed. The book is written from Stanley’s point of view, providing some very keen observations about life. Animals are so wise, they can teach us many things if we’ll take time to pay attention. Here is one of Stanley’s points:
When someone is on the computer too long, help them by distracting them or walk lightly on their keyboard. My pet crew is very good about letting me know when I’ve spent more time than they feel is necessary in front of the computer screen. Stanley suggests trying a little nudge or some repetitive pleading and if that doesn’t work, more drastic measures such as loud screeching or a walk across the keyboard should work.
To quote a very wise cat: “Devices are wonderful helpers; however, they can never replace the grandeur of body touch and the splendor of screenless contact.”
