When Patches goes outside on the balcony, the world around him stops. He sits, breathes in the air, and closes his eyes. Something out there is a calming agent. He has found a place where he can shut off any noises and just be.
The sun is rejuvenating which allows him to meditate and come back inside a different kitty. One who has taken the perspective of the surrounding environment and absorbed it into his soul. He has found the silence in nature and the importance of what is still to come. It is the new beginning.
