What a balmy few days it's been- by winter standards that is.
The mist that moved in from the east dissipated in the light of day.
And I saw a robin!
I turned and was startled to find two cats in our great ash tree
a yellow eyed female
and a yellow eyed male
Our neighbour's cat, who seems to be in this basement window all the time, watched on.
The tomcat was too shy to put on his Cheshire cat smile
though he posed well for a Wonderland tale
In my naïveté I thought I'd be of help to the beleaguered female, but she was just as shy,
and out of the tree she was more vulnerable to him, hence the scream that drew me back outside, the hissing at him from the neighbour's front yard, and finally running away. I regretted I got involved.
I took a picture of our house from their driveway, and returned home
to find our sweet boys cuddled up together on Wally's office chair.
I teased them by opening the windows which was a treat for us all.
This morning's sky was weird, but it promises to be an equally lovely spring day.
Muji kept me company with some thoughts of his own to mull over
a handsome boy in profile
please forgive another shot of my handsome boy
Meanwhile Babu did his best to harass me into an early breakfast
two hungry boys
I've been doing a bit of early spring cleaning, or rather tidying, so I will share these stained kitchen table doodlings
and the other side- obviously in a bunny sort of mood.
The writing says: "The light of a thousand stars all around you"
I don't know what was on my mind that day, but it is good to remember.
Incidentally, Wally told me last night that SEVEN Earth-sized "exo planets" (meaning outside our solar system), 3 of which may be inhabitable, have been discovered just under 40 light years (235 trillion miles) in the Aquarius Constellation. I had to laugh, obviously in a "how does this affect me" state of mind. We talked about how long it would take us to get there by present modes of travel. LifetimeSSS! Yet, truly it is a fascinating thought that one could stand on one of these new planets and see a sister planet as close as our moon, sometimes closer.
It turns out, having gone to NASA's site, that there is are several discoveries of other possibilities of inhabitable planets. Still, the bigger trick, as I see it, would be to see us evolve into the enlightenment such a gift would warrant.
peace on earth
