already home.

Standard

when giving a friend my new address

she was surprised 

to discover

that she already was familiar with that address

and she could let herself in

as she already possessed a key. 

she used to care for a little black cat who lived there,

bonnie.

her client happened to be

the woman who sold me my condo

and now 

there is a new little black cat living there,

my olive. 

there must be something about the house 

that needs a little black cat living there

to feel like home

I think they would have liked each other. 

 

“I believe that life is chaotic, a jumble of accidents, ambitions, misconceptions, bold intentions, lazy happenstances, and unintended consequences, yet I also believe that there are connections that illuminate our world, revealing its endless mystery and wonder.”

  1. Strange….I had two cats for 18 years that passed away and we just adopted another cat this summer. I was just thinking how wonderful she has been.

  2. How lovely. A special friend. A special moment. But what surprises me is that you didn’t change the locks. Come to think of it, I don’t think we have when we’ve moved homes either. 🙂
