    Ha, I knew Sophie’s place was bigger on the inside.

    Aw, Sophie… I get it. It’s totally valid to both wish for the spotlight and know it’s going to be uncomfortably glaring to stand in.

    I can hardly wait for Sophie to turn around and see Goldie! Goldie for her part looks intrigued by Sophie.

    Sounds like foreshadowing to me. I think she’s going to surprise everyone, possibly including herself.

    I’m hoping Sophie joins the Tussle — time for a costume and an alter ego!

    Does Sophie have one blue eye and one gold?

    Aw, Sophie, don’t be like that! Go make friends!

    Though I do sympathize with the desire of hiding out and curling up with a stack of books…

    I have a feeling Sophie is going to shock everyone by joining Tusslemania in impeccable style. Also, pretty sure her carrier was made by the same manufacturer as Jeannie’s bottle. Talk about interior space!

    Since I was young / I never needed anyone

    And making art was just for fun / It’s chaos that I shun

    Being alone / I think of all the books I’ve known

    And what I create is my own / I love being at home

    All by myself / I wanna be / All by myself / All the time

    Hard to be sure / Sometimes I feel so insecure

    But my art, so creative and so pure / Remains the cure

    All by myself / I like to be

    All by myself / Forever more (or do I?)

    Songwriters: Eric Carmen / Sergei Rachmaninoff

    I’m not sure Sophie is interested in making friends … She may be an introvert but she is STILL a cat, and has an innate need to do cat things, like pounce and bunny-kick the living stuffing out of, well, other cats!

    Perhaps Sophie’s artistic talents could be put to work, and add some creative flash to the event!

    Oh, Sophie, I know you are an introvert, but if you turn around you may find a new friend waiting for you.

    she sort of wants to be included, but still wants to be alone most of the time. wants to make a friend, but is afraid the friend would need too much of her time and heart from her. perhaps Sophie is an introvert who has tried to be friends with someone and was hurt by them and is too afraid to try again.

    Total Eclipse of the Heart

    Every now and then Sophie gets a little bit lonely

    And she’s never coming ‘round

    Turn around Sophie – every now and then she gets a little bit tired

    Of listening to the sound of her tears

    Turn around Sophie every now and then she gets a little bit nervous

    That the best of all her years have gone by

    Turn around Sophie every now and then she gets a little bit terrified

    And then she sees the look in their eyes

    Turn around Sophie every now and then – see Puck and Goldie

    Turn around Sophie take a look ‘round you and see your friends!

    Don’t sell yourself short, Sophie. You can have a little bit of the spotlight, too, even if you don’t participate in the tournament.

    Sophie is really waiting to get the costumes. After all, Someone has to add the pompoms for flair.

    Today is World Poetry day, and I’m just not in a poetic frame of mind. So here are some I wrote some time ago:

    “Boundary Waters”

    There are deep waters here.

    Looking up, one can drown

    in the infinity mirrored below.

    How deep is your soul?

    Do you fear the depths,

    or see mirrored therein

    the birthright of your spirit?

    There are deep waters here.

    Do you fear their silence,

    or in them hear

    an echo of your heart?

    All the gods of our species,

    here sing in choir.

    Can you not be still and listen?

    There are deep waters here,

    clear to the spirit that will see.

    There are clear waters here,

    that sing in the heart that hears.

    (A tribute to a severely endangered wilderness, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.)

    And a haiku for all you other introverts:


    Stars do not perceive

    nor believe if they are told

    their own radiance

    I think Goldie will get Sophie to come out and surprise everyone.

    No whining, girlie. They offered; you turned up your nose. Now, if you want in, they’ll welcome you but you’re going to have to make a move.

    I’m sure you’d be welcome, Sophie. Even if you’re only a spectator.

    Given ‘social distancing’ and all, I really really want to filk “Age of Aquarius” into “Age of the Introvert”.
