 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.

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)





Koko “The Curious”

Posted on

Koko, the domestic shorthair, has been spending time with me here in Brookland, Washington, D.C.   She is, because of the increased traffic in my burgeoning neighborhood, a house cat.  Still,  she finds windows and viewing and squeaky mouse toys to her liking.

She does some television viewing,  “The Defenders,”   and while she is not a regular watcher of “Game of Thrones,” she is every bit a queen.    Her favorite perch it would seem is on my lap while I sit at my desk.   She is curious about everything. – the contractors, mail delivery,  traffic and birds that perch on my windows.
