“Don’t walk in front of me — I may not follow; don’t walk behind — I may not lead; walk beside me and just be my friend.” ~ Camus
We’ve lost two friends this week, and one a few weeks ago. A young friend, one of my daughter’s best friends, has been in intensive care. Sometimes it is hard to wrap one’s heart and mind around it all. But I do. We all do. That is what we do. We love. We just love.
Tonight a coyote tried to eat my cat Oscar. I think he’ll be ok. The cat that is. I don’t know what happened to the coyote. I hope the cat bit and scratched the crap out of it. The other cat and the dog are giving him his space. He is sleeping in my daughter’s room.
She moved out two weeks ago for college. I miss her so much. She’s doing great. I’m so happy for her.
I’ll take Oscar the cat to the vet tomorrow if he is still in distress. His leg seems bruised. No blood.
I am grateful for my friendships online and off. Paranormal and not.
The air tonight is cool and comforting. I’m ready for fall. The leaves die, but for some reason I can’t explain fall always seems like a new beginning. Maybe it is because Halloween is near. Maybe it is because my birthday is in October. Maybe it is because I’m always super excited about planting fall bulbs which will bloom in the spring.
Bulbs are tiny packages of beauty and joy.
I’m trying to find more things that might be packages of joy. There are many.
So, I will get back to my book… finally. I met another writer this week and will be featuring his books in a few months on my Monday book post.
As for my books…there are ghosts, and reapers, and all kinds of demons and others who live in the shadows, corners, and even out in the open.
I’m also writing about parents, relationships, and adult kids. Cats and dogs too.
As always, I’ll leave you with thoughts of everything that is possible, things that go bump in the night (Halloween will be here soon) and love. Yes, it all comes together sooner or later.
