Scenes from The Life of “Brian”

otherwise known as

Firefrorefiddle, the fiend of the fell

Firefrorefiddle, the fiend of the fell (Brian)

 

“….In the Pantomime season I never fell flat,
And I once understudied Dick Whittington’s Cat.
But my grandest creation, as history will tell,
Was Firefrorefiddle, the Fiend of the Fell.”

(from-T.S. Eliot, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats)

Brian, the cross-eyed cat

Brian looks evil and likes to pretend he is but in reality he is very laid back

Nothing bothers him on his mountainside home

Here he is waiting patiently in the back of the truck with a critical eye on Ron’s parking skills (note the dangerous cargo sign)

and he really manages to light up Christmas

    Ha ha ha, .. Nice to meet you Brian!You are truly a very convincing character from T.S.Eliot’s “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats’ ,otherwise “The Theatre Cat”.I love your pure feline beauty and your “evil” side as your mum says.
    I love love love him and your post dear Cybele,and your reference to the story with the poor orphan boy….Fascinating all your photos and nicely treated,the video is so sweet as well.Btw,I had attended the “Cats” musical performance in London,years ago,the music was fantastic.My favourite song was “Musical Cats – Memory”, with amazing music and lyrics :”Turn your face to the moonlight Let your memory lead you ….” I am sure you know it.A special hug to Brian from me 🙂 xxx

    1. 🙂 thanks Deb- a bit of fractal magic there to sing his whiskers electric. Hoping you will like my next chapter of Siren’s Bones too!

      1. I love your writing so I’m sure I’ll love the next installment/chapter.

        I love the glow and magical quality that fractal images project. They’re in the same genre as Orton Effect images are en mon avis; Really neat, and beautiful when used on the right image and at the right opacity.
        It’s totally subjective so, in the end the artist’s vision is right, but I loved it!

      2. I agree!! thanks so much Deb and chapter five is up and chapter six in the works! and I’m always catching up these days. I need a holiday again too! Hope you are getting back to norm again-I often feel so let down after having a grand time!
