Thanksgiving Lingers . . .

. . . and we are enjoying the leftovers.

Our dear friend Lahgitana noticed how on that auspicious day Bugsy came rollicking up to me, Thanksgiving three years ago, when he was a stray on the street and I was about to become his Bean — like he knew I was The One — and these days, he’s not so into hugs . . .

. . . and this is true.  But Bugsy has his own way about him, and he makes me feel love wash through me like I was transparent.  That feeling has grown and grown over the years and friends, it’s a mellow thing now.  I am so so grateful for that.

As the sun sets at the end of this wonderful weekend . . .

I’m that thankful you’re here to share the beauty of these boys with me.

I’ve just seen — this is the 300th post.  Something auspicious about that, too.

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.

    Your boys are Beautiful!

  8. Wonderful. Kiss those boys for me!

    • nadbugs says:

      They are slobbered over until they can’t stand it any more. And you — kiss one of yours a day. Thirteen in one day might be a bit — much. Or maybe not.

  9. Aww, how cool! And congratulations on 300! Hugs to all of you!

  10. Congratulations on your 300th blog and I’m thankful I’ve found your blog 🙂

  11. Congratulations on 3 years and 300 posts. I hope there are many, many more of both to come!

    Congratulations on the 300th post. Hope you had a great thanksgiving with the two boys. 🙂 Are they still fighting?

    • nadbugs says:

      Thanksgiving was wonderful, thank you Dianda — and yes, they are still fighting. At least once a day, sometimes some real humdingers. But they are also sleeping together in one large cat-ball, usually in the center of my bed and I am either totally pinned or falling off. The same story for so many of us. And I love it. Of course. Not getting much sleep — but I still love it.
