Cassandra’s feline friends pay a visit.

A bobcat and her teenage kitten visited us today over morning coffee. At one point a local tomcat, Tiger, tried to hassle the kitten—except the mother intervened. Tiger suddenly recalled an important engagement elsewhere:<)

As I type this, they’re cuddled together under the steps outside our living room window—their ears cocked and eyes squinted while listening to George Winston’s “December.”

Albert Eistein, 1954

“A human being is part of a whole we call the universe—a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts, and our feelings as something separate from the rest…a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and our affection to those nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of Nature in its beauty.”


Chief Seattle, 1786–1866

“This we know: All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of Earth.  Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”
