Artificial Cat in the Window
July 9, 2016
Redondo Beach, California
The other day I was returning from a low-tide stroll along the rocky beaches below Palos Verdes’s steep cliffs when, for no real reason at all, I turned down a back alleyway that runs parallel to the beach (between the Esplanade and Catalina Avenue). The sun was already low on the horizon, so the only light in the alley came from the occasional spaces between apartment buildings. Then I found this wonderful old window, painted dark green; and behind the dusty glass was a black cat staring me straight in the face. It took me a moment to figure out that the cat was a piece of wood painted a smooth ebony with the face of Payewacket, obviously the owner’s familiar, watching me as a walked cautiously by.
