Cats

How can such little creatures

Make such an impact on our life

So comforting to hold them

Their loss cuts like a knife

My Husband

The best thing about yesterday was that I got to spend time with my best friend, my husband.

To me, he is the most wonderful person in the world, and I love spending time with him. If I were to define the feeling of being “at home”, it would be “time spent with my husband”.

I know that I am truly blessed, and incredibly fortunate to have him in my life.

Differences

The difference between us and animals is, um, well…

I would say that it’s our responsibility to care for others, but there are many well-documented cases of animal mothers caring for animal babies of different species.

It’s certainly not the colour of our blood.

And it’s not the capacity to reason, or feel pain.

Perhaps it’s that we *know* when we’re doing damage to the planet.

Or that *we* are the ones doing damage.

Prayer to Gaia

Mother Earth, with all thy grace,
Grant us peace here in this place.
Teach us how all lives to love
Shelter with thy skies above

Teach us how to right the wrongs
Grant us harmony with thy songs
Let us learn to love ourselves
And in thy mysteries to delve

Help us learn to heal all wounds
And lift all here so love abounds

One Day

I spend a lot of time thinking about what I want to be. Well, sometimes it’s “What do I want to be when I grow up.” But I digress.

I want to be someone who knows herself, and who lives her life to the fullest. And with my brain, that’s not easy. There are so many things going on in there – it’s like my thoughts are having a party, and I’m not invited. (It doesn’t make sleep easy either.)

But the picture is becoming clearer. I am starting to thin out my closet (thin – hah!) to contain only clothes that I like, and that “fit” my self image. I am trying to clean off my desk to make a more calming and peaceful place to work. And I am trying to be easier on myself – to quit beating myself up when I seem to be backsliding, or confused – again.

One day, I will get there. Today is not yet the day.

The Internet

Without the Internet I would have so much more time in my life.

Hello. My name is Peggi. I’m an internet addict.

I spend a good (bad?) portion of my day checking out what’s happening with my friends, and with the world in general, on Facebook. I play addictive games that I have downloaded for free. I wade through far too many emails, looking for the few that are actually of value.

It’s not like I’ve been forced to do any of this. I chose my way. I chose to download the games. I chose to join Facebook. I chose to subscribe to *far* too many newsletters.

But I’m older now. Maybe even wiser. And it’s time to wean myself off, a little bit at a time.

Maybe I’ll start by spending some time writing. Then I can post to my WordPress blog!

Oh. Wait.

Autumn

I watch the leaves falling from the trees, and feel the nip in the air. Autumn is here in full force, and winter is just around the corner. It’s nice to sit indoors, and watch my cats as they note each leaf dancing and falling to the ground. It’s almost as if they’re watching fairies, and perhaps they are. The leaves are their brightly coloured clothes, and they are dancing through the air on their way to the ground to join their brethren.
