Today has been lovely and quiet. While the tomatoes wait to be planted, everyone rests from a busy week. The spotted kitty is handicapped. She is an early generation Savannah and has a birth defect that affects her back legs. She still manages to get around, though.
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”
~ Martha Graham Flashback Tuesday, October 23, 2012 – This is my pick photo for today and stars bright red Virginia creeper all dressed up for fall 🙂 Flashback Wednesday, October 23, 2013 – This is my pick photo for today and it stars my black cat, Velvet 🙂 Doesn’t she look perfect for the season? (Update: RIP Velvet crossed the rainbow bridge a couple of weeks ago.) Thursday, October 23, 2014 – Today was very sad because one of my kitties crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He was one of my special needs cats and his seizure condition was getting worse and starting to cause him pain. After having my old black cat put down a few weeks ago, it has been a sad October. It is the 23rd day of the month long poetry challenge and I have photos of a hoverfly and a honeybee. RIP Dorzie (this very next photo was taken at the end of 2012). I was very blessed to have him in my life and he was a super sweet and kind soul. He was the friend of everyone he met and despite having grand mal seizures when he slept and feline cerebellar hyperplasia (like the cat in the video at the top of this post) was a happy fellow and an ambassador cat (F3 Savannah). “you were my best friend…
another chapter begins
for your dear soul now”
