Proper Meditation

                               Kitty tucked under..
                               On what is he so focused?
                               Absolute stillness.

I don't think any human is ever as zen as a feline can be.  I wonder what a kitty is thinking when he/she sits all tucked under, resembling a loaf of bread.  Such a direct stare.  I wonder.  Does he chant in his mind?  :)  Om.. om.. om..  Or does he plan for an upcoming nap?  I have a meditation practice of my own.  But i just can't achieve that same kind of stillness.  I get antsy.  I think about all the things i could/should be doing.  I'm getting better at it though.  I'll be zen with stuff eventually, right?

Our kitty Snickers.  She looks focused on something, though i've no idea what..

You all have a beautiful Sunday tomorrow!  Peace, and i'll be back soon..

Las Vegas Haiku in Four Verses

                             Ick and smoky haze!
                             Constant noise and no daylight!
                             People look for what?

                             Wander through slots lost
                             Stare in space oblivious..
                             Just one more dollar..
                             Such life sucking place!
                             Dizzying and confusion!
                             Wanted my escape!

                             Now i am away!
                             Home with husband and my cats!
                             Big sigh of relief!

         Well, i have now experienced Las Vegas!  I wanted to go for a short holiday and was really looking forward to it, but i pretty much detested it.  I know it's a popular destination, and most people love it there.  Leave it to me to strongly dislike something.. someplace that's popular.  The crowds.  The smoke.  The bad, unhealthy food.  People go there in droves.  The tackiness.  The list of stuff i didn't like.  Okay, enough sour grapes, and i don't mean to demean those who like it.. it just wasn't for me.  Not passing judgment though.  Just because i don't get it.. doesn't make it bad.  To each our own, you know?  :)  But i'm glad, (like super duper glad) to be home!

I promise my next post will be more positive.  I just wanted to get a few things off my chest here, then put the awfulness behind me.

You all have a great rest of the evening, and a very Happy New Year to you!  I send peace and all my love to all!

I saw none of this while i was down there.  No natural beauty.  I missed it.  I'll be back here soon!  Peace.

                                            Christmas excitement
                                            Like swirly silver happy
                                            But most of all.. peace.
