this picture is from Christmas 2011.
Calpurnia’s illness became clear a week ago today and I had been wondering if these days would be harder because of that. So far I haven’t been dwelling on those days, although I still find it hard to write about her.
Years back I spent some time thinking of theme songs for the cats. I haven’t found where I did – maybe it was on another blog. This is the one that reminded me of Calpurnia…
It is a strange coincidence that I always thought that the song ended too soon, too abruptly.
I found this video while hunting up the others for this post. I love the music and images and effects in it. It ties in with something else that happened this autumn that I didn’t share so far. The two hiatus breaks I took in October were to say goodbye to my oldest sister Cathy and then back to attend her funeral. Calla’s illness was much like that on fast forward.
This next video is a song I have loved for thirty years or more. It is surprising how well it fits here and now.
But Autumn isn’t the end. Spring will come.
