My cat won’t leave me alone when I do my yoga.  I think this is what my kids would call a “first world problem”.

But in her web she still delightsTo weave the mirror’s magic sights,For often through the silent nightsA funeral, with plumes and lights    And music, went to Camelot:Or when the Moon was overhead,Came two young lovers lately wed;“I am half sick of shadows,” said    The Lady of Shalott.

But in her web she still delights
To weave the mirror’s magic sights,
For often through the silent nights
A funeral, with plumes and lights
    And music, went to Camelot:
Or when the Moon was overhead,
Came two young lovers lately wed;
“I am half sick of shadows,” said
    The Lady of Shalott.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself,
you will succumb in every battle” —  ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War
