The muse is no more. What on earth will I write about?
I still have shingles. The cats have stuck close to provide their therapeutic best. You do know cats are natural healers, right? They purr at frequencies known to heal their own and each other’s bones, skin and soft tissue. They soothe and heal themselves by purring after stressful experiences. They can do the same for […]

When I asked for your good wishes on my birthday, I had no idea how important those positive messages would be for me.
