do you remember?

Standard

who remembers this?

sitting backwards

making faces

rolling around on turns

cigarette smoke-filled air

fighting over who could sit there

the door that swung open

back window down

best seat ever.

living the high life.

Standard

these cats

olive and rose

really have it made

a modern kitty headquarters

custom-designed and gifted from grandies

a special stash of catnip

gifted from those who cared for rose

no jobs, appointments, chores, errands, meetings, or responsibilities at all

a gift from mother nature.


“listen, don’t forget this.

don’t let this slip your mind.

most of us, if we’re lucky,

we see a few seconds of the high life.

and the rest are the residue years.”

-mitchell s. jackson,  The Residue Years

mix it up.

Standard

this sweet and treasured tiger

now has its own mask

making it even more special

there is an added joy in knowing that someone took the time

to design such a fun custom accessory for this much loved creature.

 

“mix a little foolishness with your serious plans. it is lovely to be silly at the right moment.”

unusually.

Standard

why, you might ask, is this large ceramic cat sitting in the water?

while visiting my friend’s house

i asked.

years ago

someone in the family took a ceramics class

made several large animals

gifted them to his children

who gifted them to each other

left them at each others’ houses

 used them in a variety of ways

including an outdoor towel holder

somehow over time

this one went to live in the water

looking back at the family on the shore

probably thinking the family was unusual

wondering their story

there is always a story.

 

“we are not interested in the unusual, but in the usual seen unusually.”

am i missing anything?

  from rogueNASA – “Ok, so far we’ve had a pandemic, race wars, a global economic collapse, a presidential impeachment, Brexit, murder hornets, and a contested election. Am I missing anything?”

“life is an improvisation. you have no idea what’s going to happen next

and you are mostly making things up as you go along.”
