Today, the Sunday after Thanksgiving is supposed to be the busiest travel day of the year in the U.S. People are leaving their Thanksgiving celebration destinations after time spent with family, friends and significant others. We are traveling by car, airplane, bus, train, RV and by foot and by bicycle. Despite, traffic jams, canceled flights, standing-room-only trains, one thing is certain, we are, most of us, sure of our destinations. We will get where we are going at least in the physical sense. Home. For some, however, the journey never ends, There are folks who never arrive mentally and spiritually anywhere. They are constantly in motion. They are always going, doing, emailing, using Social Media, directing, worrying, moving, gossipping. Stopping or even slowing down is not part of their inner journey. Peace for them is a foreign destination. Their road to inner harmony is roadblocked or delayed by their need for constant excitement. Often, they offer you a ride or a free ticket to join them in their insanity. Don’t get on that plane! Don’t join folks on the journey to nowhere. Wherever you travel, you can choose peace as your destination.

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)
Buzzfeed has named the 30 most important cats in the world for 2016. You can find it at https://www.buzzfeed.com/expresident/most-important-cats-of-2016
Koko and Jean Claude really enjoy their time outdoors at CCL’s new house. Unfortunately Koko really wants to explore the neighborhood and has found several escape routes. CCL has attempted to block the free spaces in her backyard with plastic containers and has installed a warning system (the orange plastic container at the top of the fence). No matter. Yesterday afternoon, Koko managed to escape to her nextdoor neighbors yard and quietly returned when she was ready.
(This Post ran in March of 2013 but not much has changed at CCL’s house – Great Escapes continue to happen daily)
Koko, the domestic shorthair and Jean Claude, the Black Bombay live the life. They eat, venture outside a bit, play and sleep. They enjoyed Christmas especially helping to unwrap presents.
Yes we are in the midst of the holiday season. New Year’s is coming. Christmas is past. Kwanzaa is here. These events implore upon us to celebrate, spend time with family and friends, enjoy good food, fun, rest, relax and find spiritual and life renewal.
Still there are a lot of people who choose negativity. They show you their dark side : envy, naysaying or inappropriate behavior all the while proclaimIng their good intentions. Many also live in a constant state of turmoil or indecision and want you to embrace their drama. They want to drag you into their nonsense.
It is time to cut the cord. Banish these bottom feeders from your life. It is time to seek new options, new horizons, positivity, hope. Choose peace.
