17 May 2010

I woke up early this morning and lay in bed watching the walls turn pale gray as the sun came up. I got up, made coffee, said goodbye to the weekend guest and went back to sleep for a few hours before I had to go out.

The bus was almost empty. At the shelter I sat on the floor and let baby kittens crawl all over me. One was so small she could curl her legs up in the palm of my hand and lay her head across my wrist. I soaked up my oxytocin hit, scooping up the tiny cats ever so gently when they wandered away.
