A little kitty followed me home today....

I have been on a creative slump as of lately. I don't know why. I try to start something and then I just can't bring myself to finish. Well, that all ended when a little kitty entered my life. I have named him Boris. I think he likes it, he hasn't complained. I found him outside my window one morning scaring my birds. I told him "Shoooo!!!". But to no avail. He would not leave. He calmly sauntered his way to my back door. Looked up at me with those beautiful green eyes and gave a quiet "Meow". My heart melted. I gave in and opened the door. He calmly made himself comfortable on my couch. He looked so cute I just had to sit next to him and stroke his back. He looked back at me and as if he was saying "It's time to create." I pondered the thought and said, "You're right, it's time." So, with my insecurities aside and self doubt put away, I went to work. I began projects and finished them. I made new items from brand new ideas I have had. I had strength and creative motivation again. And it was all because of Boris. The magical cat that entered my life at the right time. He came to me for a reason. And that reason was to find myself creatively again. I had been lost for so long in a cloud of depression and low self worth. I forgot the joys of creating and making prim art. I forgot what it was like to finish a project, step back and look and at what I had accomplished. But somehow, that cat brought that back to me. Somehow, he knew just how to get me going again.  "What a silly cat." I said to myself. And with that Boris sat in my lap and purred. Kneading my legs like dough, he made himself comfy. And I; well, got to work........




Until next time.
