Thoughtful Thursday

I'm dedicating this post to my friends Ana and Ubee and to Oscar, my kitty Daddy. Goodbye is so hard.

"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan."
Irving Townsend

I wrote a spontaneous etheree:

Like a symphony
Which never stops even
When its orchestra changes.
We loved ones still on earth hear its
Beauty; it guides our steps and we dance;
We remember how to dance... together.

Marilyn that's a very touching and thoughtful post. All the kitties that passed away will be greatly missed. Tragic times will soon pass and happiness will return to the cat blogosphere. Hope we all find fortitude and courage in these awful times.

So so sweet, and so so sad.
The photos of you are beyond-darling.
It seems like just yesterday we'd surf the cat blog sphere to laugh and smile. Lately it seems that it's all about the tears and deep grief.
We know that's the "dance of life", but we don't have to like it.
