The Great Escape

Jean Claude inspects CCL’s new backyard security measures to keep him and Koko in the yard.

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)

Choose Peace

Posted on

 

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.

Do Unto Others

Posted on

Pope Francis paid a visit to the U.S. this week.   He literally made a stop in my neighborhood of Brookland  DC in fact I can see the Basillica from my house and yes I hear the bells on the hour..  Truth be told the vibe in my neighborhood aka “Little Rome,” is always pretty positive but it took on an added “feel good” air during his visit.  One thing the Pope  quoted the Bible Luke 6:31  to a joint session of Congress  “Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You.”   Interesting in a culture where it’s usually do unto others before they Do unto you.  Unfortunately in Congress, as well as other parts of the city the latter creed seems to persist, the real question is why.   All the back-stabbing, undermining and belittling – why?  Does it really mean success for those who engage in small acts of emotional terrorism?  I like to believe the answer is NO.  I’m with Pope Francis on this one. Ultimately a higher power decides.
