"to navigate, you have to keep your island in your mind"
I count the steps from one end of my island to the other. It's one hundred steps from where I sleep to sea. Each step boasts a new sight - a new thing to explore. The cliffs, the trees, the sand the beaches. Each thing is unique; the rocks, the branches. But I know there's more out there, beyond the reef. There has got to be more. Some cats say you are ridden of your childlike curiosity when you get older, but I haven't. I wander along Wet Paw Island with a vague memory of what I was taught: how to know your location from the scent of the breeze, the angle of the mountain to the tangle of the trees. I was told to slow down, that's all they ever seemed to say. The do the same thing everyday: they work, they eat, they sleep, they play. How can you play? There's so much out there to discover.
I know I have explorers' eyes. "Otter, dream small," they say. But I know of voyagers, Warriors, ancestors in our lives.
Their blood runs in mine.
Perhaps there is more, away from this island that I call home.
Perhaps I just need to find it.
