Hello To A New Season

Posted on

Change.  It’s so hard.  It’s not just the fear factor, it’s being uncomfortable – even if it’s only temporary.  Still, it is always a good when we can adapt to change, hard as it often might be, with a smile, a sigh and just a bit of enthusiasm. There’s an amazing song on one of Quincy Jones albums, “Everything Must Change, ” sung by James Ingram.  It describes the uncertainty and the promise of change.

The weather is turning cooler, the leaves are still falling from the trees.  Those of us who live on the East Coast have turned back our clocks to welcome daylight a little earlier.

Already stores have begun displaying Christmas decorations.  Thanksgiving is next week.

In just about an hour, Koko, the domestic shorthair will be back at Crazy Cat Lady’s residence in Philadelphia.  We had a grand time and I will miss Koko as my secre-cat.  For those who read this blog regularly, you know that Koko likes to sit on my lap while I write.

Of course, I will miss her but it’s time for her to go home and for me to change my routine a bit.

Koko, I know, will be all right.  So will I.

 Grateful Healing

Posted on

This spoke to my heart again this morning. #Gratitude

Cats & All That ™

To heal it is necessary to remove yourself from people and situations that cause you pain and confusion. Giving someone the benefit of the doubt does not resolve the situation. If someone is standing on your foot it hurts. If you tell the person to stop and they keep coming back to step on your foot in the name of friendship or professional courtesy- it still hurts or at least annoying. It’s a cycle of pain. You have the power to stop it. It’s time to let go.

The Value of Peace

Posted on

We have heard a lot of criticism of  those who value “peace at any price.”  We’re told those folks are pushovers,  they never stand up for themselves, etc. etc.   Sometimes their silence, refusal to buy-in is just another form of warfare but often it’s a form of protection.

For some, peace is not on their agenda.  There are those who because of their own loneliness and despair seek disruption through mean-spirited comments or unfortunate jabs or just plain cruelty.  Words of anger, actions of anger, envy dominate the course of their existence.  They are the “reality TV” stars of their own personal and ongoing drama and unfortunately, they seek to take others hostage.

Peace is valuable to our spiritual sanity.  Seek it every day.  Say no to systems and people who try to make you part of their petty dramas.   Recently, I saw an episode of the original “Star Trek” where a race, known as “The Organians,” seem to take abuse from the Klingons who have “conquered” their planet and appear unconcerned when the Klingons start taking their citizens hostage.  All this, much to the dismay of Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise who arrived on the planet to help.   Eventually, the Organian leaders, using mind control,  quietly overpower the Klingons and the Federation ships that are about to go to war.  Then they tell both factions, “that’s enough we’re tired of you” as the Organians visibly change from “humanoids” to spirits of light.

The Organians Simply Aren’t Having It With The Klingons or The Star Trek Enterprise

Koko’s Critters

Koko enjoys her fake mice.  She is mostly an indoor cat at my house in Brookland, D.C.

 

She also serves as  my secretary (see “Koko- The Curious)
