I’m in Bermuda right now missing my kitties and our cuddles and their antics. And then, happily, I remember that I can always watch my Princess as she stars in my brother’s ABC’s “letter C”
The whole letter alphabet project is a work of art and so, I find, is the little town of St. George’s (where I stay while in Bermuda working). On my evening walks I enjoy the artistry of the little town and meet lots of kitties, real and unreal.
This is Casey (fell in love with her many months ago – there is a post all of her a while back). She is picture purrfect even in the rain:
And there are these fanciful blown glass kitties I admire in the shop window on my walks:
For a reasonable price you can own one of these and though they may need dusting they don’t need feeding – so very inexpensive upkeep (they always bring a smile to my heart).
Then there are the siblings – two aging black beauties that ALWAYS come out for a visit stretching their arthritic joints rain or shine morning or evening. This is the brother (whose name I have embarrassingly forgotten):
I’ll have to make amends and be a better guest next trip and learn and remember his name (he will likely forgive me, especially if I bring a peace offering).
Walking down Water Street just past the little community garden there is a print in a shop window that makes me smile and wish I had space on my walls at home (de-cluttering is a topic for another blog post, though I recall discussing it when I bought a little Terra Cotta Kitty in England…) so THIS TIME I just have to enjoy the artistry on my walks:
With a little research on that image I discover the art of Patrice Murciano and find that I can barely afford one of his posters (but fall in love with the lion too – check it out at your peril: http://patricemurciano.com/shop/en/animals/911-poster-lion.html )
But the artistry that never fails to win me over is the friendliness of Curry. The elderly (over 20) year old orange kitty that has a steam engine purr motor and knows how to love. He puts his whole heart, soul, and every muscle into greetings. He always makes me feel like I belong. I’ll have to post a video of him one day soon. PURR!!!!
Thank you for making me less homesick Curry! A true artist.
(and yes, my t-shirt has an abstract cat on it)
