“Example cats,” I said. I was thinking about making cat sculptures / toys of cats I’ve loved. The now invisible made visible.
“Is that like thunder cats?” Ming asked.
“Thunder cats–I know what you’re talking about. A cartoon–they were like cats, but like people, in these colorful space suits? Did they have a ring? Or a sword or something?”
Ming began to laugh. “A ring or a sword or something,” he said.
“Yeah! They all had a thing. Some kind of prop.” I was lying in bed, super tired, with a benedryl hangover. “There was a sword. Super Woman had a truth lasso. That was so cool!” God, how many times have I daydreamed about the truth lasso. “And those wrist things that could deflect bullets. And Spiderman could shoot the webs out of his wrist things.”
I touched my own wrists, imagining the deflecting bracelets there. And how many times have I made that motion, of shooting webs. I must admit–many a time. Ecstatic dancing the other day, in the sun, my arms were doing some delightful moves, including a web shooting-like motion.
“Wonder Woman had that invisible plane,” Ming said.
“The invisible plane was hers?” I asked. “Wow, yeah, I loved that thing.”
“The silly thing is how you could see her, in the plane,” Ming said.
“We had a special view of her. The kids watching the cartoon, we could see her specially. Other people could not see her. Villains could not see her.”
“They should have had a dotted line,” Ming said. “Invisible Woman had a dotted line.”
“Hmm, yes. I should get a Master’s degree in this. My thesis could be Who Can See You: The Semiotics of the Dotted Line in 1970s Cartoons.”
Yesterday we got our second vaccines. I thought I was going to barf last night but did not. We’re sleeping poorly–Ming has joint pain.
When we got home, I danced in the courtyard. I had a few hours before my side effects really started.
Thinking of making a part two about ecstatic dance. A friend watched the video then asked me some questions; I realized I didn’t talk about the ecstasy at all. I guess I figured everyone knows about ecstasy already, and where energy comes from.
Yesterday I learned that I can like goat cheese. This stuff made by a friend is very mild.
