My words and my pictures. All I have

The beauty of now


now is a ship

which captain am
sails out of sleep

steering for dream

– e. e. cummings

I’ve been reading cummings for one of the many papers I have to write, and I just loved this poem. It touches me at this moment in my life.

Things at the kitty front are going better. I can now let Mora and Robin be in the same room without fearing for their lives. They chase after each other and play in that feisty way cats play, and when the game gets too heated I call it off and send Mora back to my room, where she’s now living. Robin sulks a little when I take his play mate away, so I guess he’s finally accepting the idea of having a little sister :).

I’m enjoying this beautiful spring by spending time outside with the kittens, reading and tending the garden. I really love this time of year. And of course, on the weekends I get away to shoot my beloved sunsets. Hope you like the photos 🙂
