my house of skye and shadows


it is a rite of passage if you stay in my house, this posing with the morning shadows, and if you're skye the cat and you can see into mirrors, you can also play with shadows.  they are real as you are real and we are all together.  and we are, and i will talk about the circumstances of all this togetherness another time, but for now just know that she is here, inside wanting outside, but happy, and who knows what the next step will be?  we certainly never saw this coming.  she is buying me time and curled against me as i type these words and the television is on with the sound off and it feels like home sweet home.

  5. "... and it feels like home sweet home".

    Amen.

    I love this photo of Skye.

    It's funny to watch an outdoor cat adapt to the indoors. Some things they just don't encounter outdoors. Our Harvey cat still is wary of bathroom fans, for example. He has no frame of reference for what they are. It can be sweet and amusing to watch. :)

    of the sun___
    and moon.

  12. After reading this post I said, "Ooooh!" It feels heavy with thoughts and movement and like you are feeling the sunshine and shadows more vividly, powerfully... Can't wait to read more.
