Work and Cats

The cats relax...they are an everyday pleasure to behold.
My crazy love for them brightens my days and they always say, in their way of saying things,  'relax'.  Working helps me relax, each day I create at least a tiny bit of work.  I'll share some soon.  

“The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time.”
― Mary Oliver

“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.”
― Mary OliverWild Geese

“To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.”
