Life of a solivagant

the traveller

“Bruno Catalano (b. 1960), France
Nicko, 2017 Bronze sculpture
A suitcase, a man. He seizes it, and goes to the unknown.  The traveller is this man left to himself, a man propelled in the infinity of time and space.  His house is nothing more than a suitcase and his being, gradually, will be stripped of all that he believed indispensable, all his self so cleverly built by our societies.  He is no longer the man of a world, but the man in the world, still imbued with his culture but become fragile in the face of immensity.  His quest will not be without damage.  Man defragmented, destabilized, stripped of his bearings, he walks towards his salvation as much as towards his run. Everything will now be reinvented.  This traveller escapes from himself, to meet his unknown land.”

Wow, seven years already?  Time sure flies when I’m busy napping and eating all day.
So, what’s so special about the 7th year?  Wait! Let me put on my thinking cat.  As you know, number 7 is a special and significant number. There are 7 days in a week, 7 colors in the rainbow,7 layers of skin, 7 basic musical notes, 7 continents in the world and 7 wonders of the ancient world.
But, I’m rather intrigued about the 7 dwarfs in the fairy tale, Snow White,a lady bug commonly has 7 spots, the code for James Bond is 007, 7 Harry Potter novels, most of the mammals’ necks have seven bones, the neutral pH value is 7 and 7 beautiful letters makes us FRIENDS.  
As always, my sincere thanks to all for being a part of this pawsitive journey.

Journey of love and acceptance

cat calendar
Going on 18 years now since my dad was called home.
And it took me a long time to realize that
the process of grieving is not
something one can ignore.
It is not about being weak or strong
or how long one should grieve.  
Grieving is a journey  of acceptance.  
A new way of seeing.
A lesson on life and death.  
An awakening to living a true life.
Grief is an act of love we have
for those we love and hold so dear.
 It is really a journey of love in the presence
to a new journey of love in the absence.

NBC is 6 today!  
It’s been a wonderful 6-year journey of sheer joy.  
An enriching  and uplifting experience
of sharing and connecting with
other fellow bloggers and readers
from around the globe.  
To me, blogging is an instant getaway
from the humdrum of everyday life,
a safe haven in times of chaos.
And a place I fondly call
“My safe, happy space”
Many thanks for sharing this joy with me!
