And the Beat Goes On
My friend Kim Fay quotes Confucius on her website with his sage words that a journey begins with a single step. For me a journey begins with a single list, and each checked-off item brings me closer to my departure.
Cat to the vet--check
Go to Alaska to say goodbye to family and leave cat--well not yet
This is not an easy step for the cat or for me. He's been my comrade and distraction and occasionally a comforter ever since he entered my life in 2002. His major flaw is he does not travel well which is why today he faces a four hour plane ride as opposed to one that is over four times that length.
I know he'll eventually be happy--and so will I--but today we will both end up temporarily hating each other--just as it is in any good relationship. Please wish us luck...
