Cat & Story

I was sitting here and decided to take my hair down. Pulled the clip out and ran my fingers through it, and the smell of my conditioner filled the air. All of a sudden there is pawing and purring behind me. Thomas is kneading the back of my head. I giggle a little and than he begins to slide around me. The above two pictures are his lolling about my neck as though he were a snake of some sort. A Thomas snake.

I was not sure what I was going to post today. I had no idea at all. So I am posting about Thomas. You may not want to read, but he makes me smile.

I did do something today that I am very proud of. I wrote a short story. One that I had an idea for coming out of a bizarre dream image. I almost actually screamed when I woke up but realized that it would make a good story instead. So I wrote. And wrote. And wrote some more.

The story flowed from my fingers. I wrote and it came. There were a few moments when I had a bit of difficulty, but I messaged K and she reassured me all was okay. If I needed to I could take a break. But I did not want to take a break because I was afraid that I would lose the flow of words.

My stories all tend to be a little dark. But as dark as they are, sometimes they have a joy and happiness in them too. Growth. They allow me to come to terms with somethings and I hope that at the same time, I tell a good tale.

This is probably really convoluted. Making no sense at all. But today was a good day. Thomas made me laugh and giggle as he gave me some feline loving. I wrote what I think is an amazing story. And two new poems. Oh yeah, I even worked this afternoon but that is nothing compared to the Writing!!!!!!

Have a great day/evening wherever you find yourself and at whatever time.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
