Thinking About Tomorrow…


People were always getting ready for tomorrow. I didn’t believe in that. Tomorrow wasn’t ready for them. It didn’t even know they were there.

–Cormac McCarthy. The Road.


(This quotation came to my mind when I saw this darling taking a leap…)

    So, Paige … not only an ear for every story going on, but an eye, ditto!
    You are a most clever and observant person. 😀

      Aw, you’re too kind! I was happy to see the little kitty taking the leap–and I think it made a few other people stop and watch him in the street. I’m glad the photos turned out. I do have a tendency to end up with a lot of photos that are far too blurry to be blog-able. 🙂
      Take care, M.R.!

      Joanne, I loved your post on picking one’s battles. It helped me a lot as I’ve been in a mix of moods lately!

    Love it, I feel like the cat but I am never sure I will make the leap. Have a safe trip.
    Will be glad to see you in the GOOD OLD USA.

        prayers will get you thru security. In my thoughts and prayers. Best to you
