Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

31 Days of Halloween...Day 15

Today's page is for the 31 days challenge and features one of my favourite cats. I have always have had a thing for black cats..right back to when I was a child. My grandmother always had black cats and said that she had them because people didn't like them. I always thought that was strange and it wasn't until I was older and ran a cat rescue that I realised that she was right. No matter how many cats or kittens I had to was always the black ones that took the longest. Now with my tribe.. 5 of mine are black. It makes me laugh that some people can't understand how I can tell them apart...but to me is easy..they are all so different. Jeffrey is huge, Pinky is bad tempered, Raven is my homebody, Tankie suffers with her allergies and Simon is the one that falls over a On the black cat page my favourite quote is the one about all cats being black in the dark. The main image is from Bugaboo and the cat shape actually looks like my Pinky. She has a slight oriental look. She made me laugh last night. The police came over the fact that Nosey had been killed and to update me on what was being done. Pinky sat behind me the whole time growling. I laughed and said she was playing guard cat and they laughed as well. One of them admitted to owning a was as if it was her guilty and was laughing about the amount of food that was out to be eaten. When I told her just how much they got through she was a little shocked. I thought to myself you should see them when they're waiting for their

The sky is bright blue and the sun is shining here in the mountains today. All the cats are outside and peace least for a short I'm working on some word stencils at the moment. I have seen a number on the television but didn't like the font or the way that you couldn't read the word very I'm in process of making my own. It seems a lot of work to get it right..but I'm determined because I have an idea in mind and if I don't get will just drive me crazy. I don't know how it works for you but when I've had an idea I've just got to go with it. I'm just grateful that my mojo is still working. I did think a few weeks ago that my mojo was leaving..I have no idea why..I felt as if I had no inspiration....but all is back on track now. Thank goodness.

Well the coffee is calling and then I'll be back to the stencils. It seems very quiet in the village today..the only thing that I can hear is the birdsong. I hope that you will take the time to take a look at all the other wonderful creations created by all the artists that have joined in the 31 days challenge. I am totally blown away by some of the creations..I really need to up my game next year. But I have to say that I'm so enjoying this challenge..I feel like a woman on a mission and I know Henry would have loved it. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
