We had a beautiful rainbow here in Santa Monica yesterday afternoon. I hope that’s a good sign rainbows coast to coast.
I've always enjoyed photos of French writer Colette with her cats. Patti is maintaining this grand tradition of 20th Century literary figures!
Hello Ciaro. It's always nice to see you. Here's a poem for you and mama. ♡
TRANSLATED BY SEAMUS HEANEY
From the ninth-century Irish poem
Pangur Bán and I at work,
Adepts, equals, cat and clerk:
His whole instinct is to hunt,
Mine to free the meaning pent.
More than loud acclaim, I love
Books, silence, thought, my alcove.
Happy for me, Pangur Bán
Child-plays round some mouse’s den.
Truth to tell, just being here,
Housed alone, housed together,
Adds up to its own reward:
Concentration, stealthy art.
Next thing an unwary mouse
Bares his flank: Pangur pounces.
Next thing lines that held and held
Meaning back begin to yield.
All the while, his round bright eye
Fixes on the wall, while I
Focus my less piercing gaze
On the challenge of the page.
With his unsheathed, perfect nails
Pangur springs, exults and kills.
When the longed-for, difficult
Answers come, I too exult.
So it goes. To each his own.
No vying. No vexation.
Taking pleasure, taking pains,
Kindred spirits, veterans.
Day and night, soft purr, soft pad,
Pangur Bán has learned his trade.
Day and night, my own hard work
Solves the cruxes, makes a mark.
sweet Patti and cute Cairo
G'night Patti and Cairo XXX
Ohhh sweet precious Cairo 😘
Sleep well, both of you 💤
We remember all those who perished on 9/11
Thanks to the gods my husband came home the night before on 9/10 from the millennium hotel…his meeting the next morning was cancelled.
