I thought about the ocean, but sometimes it is NOT peaceful. I considered farm animals, but they make a LOT of noise. Then, I looked around for something at home where I feel most peaceful. Who should be peacefully resting in my folder, but Mama Kitty?
Granted Kalev is NOT peaceful. Every morning she charges out to see Mama Kitty, her body twisting and writhing with excitement. Amazingly Mama Kitty just stands waiting for her morning kiss from Kalev.
Scardy could do anything to her without rousing her ire. Scardy mellowed in adulthood, but as a baby…. Mama had to have the patience of a … oh yeah – Mama.
Even when Kalev first came to live with use, Mama tolerated her advances.
Mama Kitty can even bear the burden carrying a tree on her back without getting riled.
Other animals lose their cool from time to time, even me, but Mama Kitty is ALWAYS peaceful.
I met Richard Tulloch’s Life on the Road just last week when I saw his Reflections post. Richard writes children’s books, and travel articles so he has to be a new hero of mine, but since he is based out of Sydney and Amsterdam, I hadn’t heard of him. From him I learned about a famous walk, El Camino se Santiago, that my friend Leslie wants to take and invited me to join her – and any other brave souls. I hope you’ll enjoy Richard as much as I have in the short time I’ve followed him.
