#infj #cats #kittyheaven #kitty #art #poetry #depression #psychotherapy #mentalhealth 20 years ago today, a blessed event at our house, the day tabitha had kittens.. i talk about it here on today's lost & found post down at the end: https://friendlyghost.typepad.com/lost_found_vintage_toys/2021/04/cat-lovers.html so mr dad & i got the j&j 1 shot back on the 10th & are now good to go, i had a rough time but he had nothing whatsoever.. he is a sasquatch though. dan's next. i've been talking to my old therapist after such a long time, these weird days we're living through find those of us who are a vulnerable part of the population that have dealt with mental health issues in the past, only to have our terrors return again this way. still, an oddball like me crawling out of the woodwork after 15 years is remarkable. on a strange note, while setting up for my last zoom session i noticed the hughes art print i've had over my bed for the last 20 years or so & looked into it a bit, only to come to an interesting revelation. it was inspired by this poem by w.e. henley margaritae sorori a late lark twitters from the quiet skies: and from the west, where the sun, his day's work ended, lingers as in content, there falls on the old, gray city an influence luminous and serene, a shining peace. the smoke ascends in a rosy-and-golden haze. the spires shine and are changed. in the valley shadows rise. the lark sings on. the sun, closing his benediction, sinks, and the darkening air thrills with a sense of the triumphing night night with her train of stars and her great gift of sleep. so be my passing! my task accomplish'd and the long day done, my wages taken, and in my heart some late lark singing, let me be gather'd to the quiet west, the sundown splendid and serene, death. it's the angel of death. night & her train of stars, seen here: https://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/around_the_bend/i-love-my-room.html i love sleep btw. nighttime or naptime, i seek the perfect sleep. p.s. this gave me a chuckle today: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/69/b4/45/69b4459211651312164efa9b6f21ab7d.jpg
