A Special Blog Post for Umber Dove

A bright and clear morning, the dove was sitting high in the silvery pink branches.
Mr Sweet Pants (his full name Augustus Gorba Stripester) and
Mr Puffy Pants (his full name Ollie Anderdunk Gingerella) who also go by other appellations
were telepathying with one of their favorite artists, the lovely UmberDove, who had been feeling less than well.

When Sweet pants sprung into action
and Puffy Pants followed suit I knew they had some good ideas.
Here they are formulating their ideas, a very precious moment for a cat mom.
They, via telepathy, contacted another of their favorite artists in Sweden, Carolina Gronholm, and asked to have tote bags made of their images
to sell for UmberDove's Get Well Fund.  Naturally, she agreed and even offered a discount to join their feline efforts.

This lovely bag, 38 x 42 cm, with long handles, will adorn your body head to toe and you may find yourself being chased on the streets.  One has the image of Super Hero Augustus who responds to distressful meows
and the other has the image of Augustus' sidekick, Ollie, who is ready to assist.
Friends, this is a limited edition, ONLY 8 available (four are ready for delivery and four are being shipped from Sweden).
The bags cost $25 each with ALL proceeds to go to the Umber Dove Family, a little token of love from the furry creatures who love her.

"In the world of existence there is indeed no greater power than the power of love."
- Abdul Baha Spiritual Leader

Cat boys wish that their love merges with all the others' to bring healing from the realm of hope to that of reality.

Ciao everyone!

Loving those ear lobes...

Last Sunday morning I was admiring furry ear lobes. A pair of them were right by my side
while the second pair was hidden in the thick green of the unpretentious backyard.
Mr Sweet Pants who had obviously heard my inner thoughts, mostly admiring his gorgeous ear lobes, glanced towards me,
and then walked over while mumbling a little bit to himself.  He can be quite talkative.
Gingerella who admires his brother greatly was observing with the usual level of keen interest.
As the two walked towards the clearing where we would sit for reflection I sensed the magnetic fields at work,
the rays of light shining brightly on us all.
We were thinking of such things that morning.

"In theoretical physics, the hierarchy problem is the large discrepancy between aspects of the weak force and gravity.  Physicists are unable to explain, for example, why the weak force is 1032  stronger than the force of gravity." -from Wikipedia

How can one lift a light object from let's say a table without effort while defying the very strong forces of gravity?
Augustus the Sweet Pants and Ollie Gingerella Puffy Pants who could not answer the question asked if I thought the strong forces of love would be able to surpass the gravitational forces.

Let's face it, the cat boys have become only more clever in 2014 and this means that I am in trouble.

They prepared pawfuls of kisses and blew them in the air with their best wishes.

Ciao everyone!

The skies were blue on that first day of 2014.
I found the cat boys at their usual best...Mr Puffy Pants spying on
Mr Sweet Pants who was checking the electric circuit boxes.
We decided to join them....
MrLittleJeans grabbed the Sweet Pants by his tail for a kiss on the wall while
I got busy gathering grass for Mr Puffy Pants ...
who munches on salads like no other cat we have seen.
Mr Sweet Pants exclaimed that his brother was still funny in 2014 as he was before and we think that he is right.

I asked the salad muncher
and Sweet Pants
to assume a posture of active listening so we could reflect on this passage....

"The dimension that counts for the creative person is the space he creates within himself.  This inner space is closer to the infinite than the other, and it is the privilege of the balanced mind... and the search for an equilibrium is essential- to be aware of the inner space as he is of outer space."

This quote is a favorite of the cat boys who believe that an open inner space is essential to living a balanced life.  We discussed this at length and to our satisfaction by staring at each other for a long time.  When all were satisfied the cat boys made pawfuls of kisses and blew them in the air for a Happy 2014!

Ciao everyone!
