This morning I listened closely to my cat’s purring and tuned into the whole experience. I discovered that there are 3 parts to the purr: 1. the inhale, 2. a low in between sound, 3. the exhale. I started thinking what the sounds would look like in a mosaic. Lately, I find my self thinking how just about everything would look like as a mosaic.
The inhale is the loudest part of the purr. I saw it as big, round balls. Then came the soft, low in between sound in the back of her throat. I saw that as small pebbles rolling around. Finally, I imaged the exhale as lines of air coming out of her mouth. I used cool, soothing colors because I find my cat’s purring to be soft and comforting.
