Cat on Table, watercolor of Maine Coon kitty cat

Cats are independent and develop habits of sleeping wherever they want, even if it's atop the dining room table. No amount of scolding or coaxing the Czar (Zarr) would keep him off the table. He was a regal Maine Coon and he knew it. He ruled the house.

The Day I Stopped Living

"Pink Roses" oil on canvas

The day I stopped living, the flowers arrived. Some fresh, some crinkly, and others a little wilted, too meaningful for words. 

A friend asked today why I haven't been blogging. I paused long enough to realize that my life has been overflowing with "stuff" to do, all of it good but all of it time consuming. I've little time left for me. I've become like the flowers, sometimes fresh, sometimes crinkly, and other times a little wilted. 

The above painting of  "Pink Roses"  is an oil painting on canvas. The painting is available for purchase. Contact me for details through one of the following links.

Did you know Cardinals mate for life? Other bird species mating for life (until death do us part) include bald eagles, lovebirds, swans, scarlet macaws, whooping cranes, California condors, black vultures (who knew or even thought about it), Atlantic puffins, albatrosses, and turtle doves also known as mourning doves or rain doves.

"Life is a Great Adventure, or nothing at all."

Helen Keller (3) 

When feeling a little down in the dumps, remember Helen Keller who could neither see or hear yet  learned to communicate and go on to great things in life. If Helen Keller could bring herself out of the dark and learn to experience the light, so can we.
