There are friends and people in your life that are only meant to be kept for a season. The length of that season is up to you. I’m told that people can’t and don’t change but we do every day.

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.

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.
