Spring is here all too fast...

even though not fast enough for those who have endured a long and hard winter.

The skies that cover our complex belong to heavenly places, we are so thankful for the blues and greens and the white smeared above us.

Down below a few flowers adorn the beaten land of our back yard only once a year and that seems to be just enough, making us appreciate their beauty even more.
Two cuties pies were exploring.

Cat boys were thinking about this

"For intellect conceives not save limited things. Verily, bound by the realm of limitations, men are unable to gaze upon things simultaneously in their manifold aspects. Thus it is perplexing for them to comprehend that lofty station. No one can recognize the truth of the Middle Way between the two extreme poles except after attaining unto the gate of the heart and beholding the realities of the worlds, visible and unseen."

--The Báb, The Gate, Spiritual Teacher

and when they shared it with me I thought I had no idea what they were saying.  That's what I get for sending the boys to ashrams were they obviously meditate a lot and become acquainted with the abstruse!

Cat boys send you big purrs and little purrs....

Ciao everyone!

...when plans change

When Gussy looked back on our way out yesterday I knew I had to follow his gaze.
Behind, Ollie was rolling on the floor seemingly practicing a good back stroke probably because it had rained some days ago.

Then he pretended to be an opera singer, a worth effort in my opinion because he has the most beautiful vocal cords.

Augustus said that he could not look anymore.

 Then he checked with me to see what to do.

 Ollie showed me a good portion of his beautiful tongue to indicate that he was not delirious.

 Augustus thought he'd better check for himself.

 Then I found the two of them rolling on the ground.

 Augustus tried to peel off the ground

 and escape.  Next we heard the parrots on the tree outside the complex and the cat boys were off to check these birds pronto!

Sometimes we step out with the intention of observing, reading, and reflecting, and we succeed.  Other times, a certain orange cat starts playing and the plans change.

In my feline excursion that day I was thinking about this:

"I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay undiscovered before me."- Isaac Newton.

I am certain we all have experienced the pleasures of discovery and pondered over magical mysteries.  Cat boys said that they had.

The weekend is around the corner.  Enjoy.  Cat boys sent you kitty kisses and purrs!

Ciao everyone!
