WE’RE BACK

We have been many places.

Wherein each color represents a new day of travel completed between May 31 and June 9.

Since last writing I have filled my days with boxes and rooftops and kissing and crying and driving with the windows down and listening to Joy Division and driving with the windows up and listening to Joy Division and campfires and farmbeds and childhood beds and James Joyce and highway waking dreams and letters never sent and weddings and shrimp cocktail and a churning ice ocean and friends’ parents’ back porches and speeding home in the dark along 22, that familiar cut between the mountains, pulling into the driveway and hearing the car settle, seeing a light on inside. 

I write to you from Huntingdon, PA, where currently we catsit for Archie and Feather, aka the Kittyboys, a gang of highly affectionate ne’er-do-wells. (More on them in subsequent posts.) I am shellshocked, filled with love, my compass is broken but these hills are familiar.

Here are the cats of recent days.

About bearicaquinn

Smallish, smushy in the sad parts, certainly destined for cat-lady-dom. Enjoys boats, bikes, black coffee, pug faces, sourdough bread, the morning when you have slept long enough, beards, mountainsides, art, rooftops, etc. Will continue to live in things that are interestingly shaped. So octopus.

    Glad to hear you are back in Huntingdon. I too am cat sitting for friends for a month, starting this thursday in State College. I can’t wait to meet my two new feline friends. Hope to bump into you at some point,

    That. lion.

    You were right by where my parents live! Which, come to think of it…remembering how I ever first connected to your blog, this makes sense. I guess we are from the same neck of the woods!

    Happy settling back in.
