Dancing at the Desk

Whenever I hear “In Motion” by Trent Reznor/Atticus Ross, why, I just start bobbing and bouncing. Reflex. Kind of like my grumpy cat J. used to do whenever she heard Balinese Gamelan on the Nonesuch Sampler. Pavlovian.

Our kitty Milo passed away last Thursday night, and I'm sad. We rescued him from a spa in Calistoga in oh, about 1998. He had been failing for a few months. Our senior kitty boys seem to suffer from kidney problems eventually, no matter what we try.  I just returned from the midwest and I'm having a heck of a time adjusting to the time change.
