After what felt like a busy day I return home. It is almost dark but also quite evident that the longer days are on their way. I grab my old camera while they (Ollie and August) wait for me, and we go out for our walk. Deep in thoughts over this (the day), that (news of Haiti), and the other (what else do I have to do), it suddenly occurs to me that I am low on pictures. I point my camera in the dark toward the cat boys who are roaming in their make shift jungle, and I see:
The boys meowed that their recent fame pleased them much; however, they now can only go out in cognito, which means that I have to shop for camouflage clothing.
Much later in the evening Ollie helped me to get the mail
and this really tired him, so in the tradition of mailmen ( I think), our mailcat stretched out for a while.
At some point, we discussed the situation in Haiti and we prayed for our brothers and sisters who were experiencing difficulties, and we meditated on this passage:
"As preordained by the Fountain-head of Creation, the temple of the world hath been fashioned after the image and likeness of the human body. In fact each mirroreth forth the image of the other, wert thou but to observe with discerning eyes. By this is meant that even as the human body in this world, which is outwardly composed of different limbs and organs, is in reality a closely integrated, coherent entity, similarly the structure of the physical world is like unto a single being whose limbs and members are inseparably linked together.
Were one to observe with an eye that discovereth the realities of all things, it would become clear that the greatest relationship that bindeth the world of being together lieth in the range of created things themselves, and that co-operation, mutual aid and reciprocity are essential characteristics in the unified body of the world of being, inasmuch as all created things are closely related together and each is influenced by the other or deriveth benefit therefrom, either directly or indirectly."
Remember Haiti in your hearts!
