IN MY COTTAGE




My cottage is my retreat from the world where I can enjoy sweet silence and the company of my cats.

They don't talk much, but I know they are there.  I put on some music, get my cup of coffee and the paper and sit on my tiny porch and all is right with the universe.


From my porch I can see the woods, unspoiled and a bit mysterious.  I hear the sound of a distant siren, loud and insistent.  But I ignore it and return to my coffee.


The cats are staring through the screen intently, looking for a bird, a squirrel and most of all, the stray calico cat whom Mommy inexplicably feeds.




    Maybe after breakfast there will be time for a walk past the lake to see the ducks before I must once again enter the world of noise and traffic and cell phones and frustration, where things go wrong and so much is beyond my control.  But later I can come back to my kingdom and slowly fall into peace.

    1. Thank you! I feel it is me as well. The designer and I worked very closely together and she came to know how very weird and whimsical I am. She may never recover!
