Aside

Maria R.I.P.

10 Feb

001bHad to say goodbye to my sweet girl this morning. Just a couple of months ago she was making a mess of the index cards I was using to help me organize a chapbook. She loved nothing more than to interfere whenever I or my husband was focused on a task. We miss her so desperately already. As for my daily shorties, I have kept up with them, barely. But right now I have no heart for anything else. I will catch up on story posts when I’m better.

    Hug. I’m so sorry. A hard, sad transition, full of missing. Sending you cat-lover’s love.

    So sorry, Claire. But it’s nice to know that Maria played a part in this challenge and will always be a part of it.

    I imagine that Maria’s passing leaves a big hole in your daily lives, when you wake up in the morning, when you write, when you come home expecting her to be there. She was such an interesting cat and presence. So sad! So many years of being attached and connected.
