Window Cat Excerpt:

Kit Cat yawned. It was a warm, sleepy afternoon, and the little cat was enjoying lounging in her favorite spot in the Ahway Island Animal Shelter – the big front window of the Shelter. Kit stretched as she lounged in the sunlight. This was a sleepy time of day for almost all the animals in the Shelter, and for the Shelter volunteers, too. Annie, one of the volunteers, was drinking coffee at her desk and yawning. Seeing Annie yawn made Kit yawn again.

Kit’s eyes drifted shut as she started to doze off again. But after a couple of moments, Kit opened her eyes again. She had heard a sound coming from outside the window. Kit turned her head toward the window to see what the noise was. There, standing on the sidewalk outside, was a dark-haired woman. She was gazing into the window, looking right at Kit. When the woman saw that Kit had noticed her, the woman waved her fingers at Kit. Kit blinked her eyes sleepily, still not totally awake.

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating on a cloud, and relax into the feeling of lightness.
