Do unto others...


Here is a very sweet case of "Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You."
Just received this photo from the lady who left behind the charismatic polkadotted kitties for me a few days ago (scroll down to read if you missed this post). Would you believe that she came home and found this (almost seemingly related) kittie in her post?!! Looks like it's become a follower, LOL!

Tribute to a life

You can imagine the sense of sadness I felt when I found this cat skelleton in my garden the other day. The garden being on a rural Greek mountainside, there's a 99% chance that this cat died of hunger, illness, dehydration or the cold. It didn't look like a peaceful death scene and knowing the sure destiny of thousands and thousands of Greek cats, I wanted to make a mark. So I thought about it for a few days and this morning, when wondering where I should put a newly acquired catnip (a plant cats adore), it suddenly became clear that the cat skelleton should have a proper burial and that the catnip should be planted on top! So here's the before and after. It was a lovely little ceremony and a tribute to the life of the cat to which these bones belonged.

May it rest in peace.

A charismatic couple


Thanks SO much to the sweet guest who secretly left behind this charismatic couple for me after staying in our house. It could probably only be a fellow lover of the feline creature who would spot such an unlikely pair. Cats with yellow polka dots. I love them!! 

Brought them along for a photo session at the beach and they didn't seem to mind doing a bit of modelling :-)

What are we governed by??


When I found these two snails in the garden I thought someone must have placed them like that. Such a perfect little pair. But no - they were solidly stuck to the stone, so I assumed they'd decided to rest next to eachother right there and then :-) Anyhow, the perfect spiral in a snail makes me wonder about the Fibonacci sequence. It's so mysterious. Have a look and a listen to this song and take a breather whilst you let your mind wonder... profoundly so. Goes a very long way to show (at least to this person) that we ARE indeed governed by something so much bigger than we might like to acknowledge, and that even the smallest creature plays a meaningful part in this great mystery we're all caught up in.
