It never gets easier.

It hurts, every time.

No matter how many cats I had to let go, no matter the circumstances.

Loosing a family member always hurts.

And they all, every single one have a special place in our home and hearts.

Forever.

The most recent cat we had to le...

It has happened. 

The good news for the new job, the new house we have been waiting for so long has just arrived and we are ecstatic.
But with a glance towards our beloved cat our excitement suddenly becomes overshadowed by guilt and confusion.
What about my cats?

Four walls, a door... 

In the strong grip

of the void

Open door,

wide

peculiar...

What use is an open door,

if you don't know where to go...

Inhaling the fragrance

of the incense

and my dreams

make their way towards you

Luscious sweetness saturates the air

a firm embrace of your strong arms

the soft stroke of your hands on my skin...

It’s that time again. 

The time we start thinking about the best present for our loved ones, especially our little ones.

‘A little kitty, wouldn’t that be perfect? My little girl would really love that.

You

came in.

Turned my life

inside out.

Then the

and not

out

again.

Healing.

I hope.

You arrived yesterday night
for your passing over
in the thought and presence of
people who really care
no matter what
no matter who u tried to show
people who really cherish you,
the Real YOU

a passing over of freedom
feel of the strength and s...

I wish we would have known each other more

and less

I wish our souls would have been allowed

to connect some more

I wish the mirror we had in between us

would not have misted up

and showed a blurry reflection

of our soul our image

which we thought is real

We met,

we saw,

The wind comes from the west,

boldly humming his tale of weathered old cottages

staring onto the glassy surface of the cold Atlantic sea

and mushy white and black sheep grazing on

wide luscious pastures of my beloved green Isle.

The leafy little spot hidden behind an overpo...
