Here we go, sharing some more, with more questions that will not have easy answers – at least for me. But Cee has put down the gauntlet (does one “put down” a gauntlet? If not, you get what I mean don’t you?) and I’m going to put forth my best effort.
1. If you could be any animal, what would you be? There are many wild animals that are so beautiful, so majestic, that would be tempting. As would a bird, with its ability to fly. But – and this is a very large but – their lives are too much of a challenge, too much work. If I were going to be an animal, I would want life as easy as possible, as comfortable as possible. Therefore, my choice would have to be one of my cats. One of the dogs would be okay, but I think I don’t want to be so dependent on my people’s approval, so I’ll take the cat – where I can be what I want, do what I want, have my way and have only to cuddle with my person occasionally, to look at her with big soft eyes as if she were the most important thing in the world, and she would be mine!
2.. If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be? I pondered this question for quite awhile. I considered and dismissed several traffic signs. Given the way things have been for the past year or so, I think the sign that says “bump” would be the most appropriate.
3. What was your most memorable birthday? Would the fact that I can think of no specific birthday, none that just jumps out at me as really special, give the indication that life is boring? It’s not truly, but I think I don’t consider a birthday much more than any other day now, so I think my most memorable birthday, or day, is this one. This day, where I woke up and was able to get out of bed with clear mind and (relatively) healthy body.
4. In what do you find the simplest of joys? Oh! Each new day, each dawn, the thrusting through the soil of new growth, the bird in the tree outside my window, the birth of a new bud bursting into bloom, the antics of my furry girls, their kisses. Living, sharing time with loved ones and friends. I could go on for a very long time here.
Now a few photos, mostly of the little furry girls having a wrestling match one recent morning.
