ill tell you something filled with bliss

driving thru the orchards with the windows down music loud
fast - but not too fast. smelling the freshly watered apple trees
the earthy renewal phase that the world goes thru each night - that smell is phenomenal
that cool air , thats not too cold to give you goose bumps and want the heater on
the air thats not too hot that makes you want the windows up & a/c on
its dark and the only light is from your headlights, an occasional house light, & the stars
cant take enough deep breaths of that sweet air ....
that music, that breeze, that smell, that temp , that FEEL ...
makes me want to close my eyes and float away

but wait... i'm driving.

when i finally get out - i look up. only to see the most spectacular view : a shooting star in that speckled crowded sky of ours, what are the chances? that sky... filled with stars, galaxies, planets, planes ... & anything else. breathe in one more deep breath of that sweet air. that smell , you know which one im talking about? its like the earth turns everything over & cleans it off so it can be fresh during the night.. calm & cool.

thats a tiny piece of bliss. teeny tiny.

Roux Skei

so my kitten Roux has been missing for exactly a week today - very very very sad. i've been stressed out & depressed for a whole week about it. she is only 10 months old. she is my best friend. i call for her every day multiple times. i posted up LOST CAT fliers everywhere, i asked every single neighbor, i went searching for her, called & checked in at each animal shelter/pound .... nothing.
two of my friends who are animal intuitive's have been giving me feedback & yesterday they both felt that roux was at peace and no longer alive....
super super sad. and i hope its not true. i miss her so much.

she was my 22nd birthday present. i looked for an entire week at tons of ads for kittens and i picked HER! my little tiny, semi-cross eyed, kind of retarded, fearless, playful, LOUD, mischievous, random, hilarious, bent whiskered kitty ROUX SKEI. i love her so much ! please send the best vibes you can spare to give me to have my baby kitten come back home to me!
