Kid and Cat Hanging Out

With both my daughters in their teens now, I spend a stupid amount of time thinking over what makes our lives, what fills our days, how has their childhoods unwound?

Yesterday, looking up from my laptop at the kitchen table, I realize this — kid with cat — is the main action around here. Thank goodness.

Before a Cat will condescend
To treat you as a trusted friend,
Some little token of esteem
Is needed, like a dish of cream…

— T. S. Eliot

  1. “Cause when I look around
    I think this, this is good enough
    And I try to laugh
    At whatever life brings
    Cause when I look down
    I just miss all the good stuff
    When I look up
    I just trip over things”
