Too beautiful, "Anatma" - thanks for posting, where I can read it easily. I'm still and possibly forever will be on dial-up.

Hi Fearless. My crisis of faith must have lasted 20 years. Then BC and a family who took a powder when I was diagnosed, loss of my husband, some hard years, finished it off. I too became agnostic and finally I just couldn't believe in a man in the sky any longer. Floundered around for awhile and have come to a sort of unsettled peace.

Hope you find your peace.

flannelette, is that a new addition to your family? I have an all grown up orange tabby. I didn't know him when he was that size. He'd been living outside and needed to be inside. He loves climate control! Enjoy that pencil-tail.

I have looked into many religions after I left the faith of my upbringing.  I never found a religion that made sense .  The philosophy of Buddhism is something I cherish, especially the teachings on kindness, compassion and equanimity but rebirth/reincarnation doesn't make sense to me.  Now recycling certainly does make sense.  We are made up of the stuff of the Big Bang and death is a reorganization of that stuff into something else.

The wee kitten's our Sunny and that was him about 3 weeks old. A year and a half ago. I (we) volunteer for our Humane Society and someone had dumped a pregnant cat and people caught it and brought it to the Humane and next thing - we were the foster parents. After a month she had 7 kittens on a wicker chair in the porch. and we raised them, and I took pics all the time. So much fun! then, naturally, we were in tears at return to Humane society time so we kept mom and 2 kittens - they are the Mummy family - Sunny Mummy, Binky Mummy, and Mommy Mummy. I hope to give them all a turn here. Sick of looking at chemo-head me.

Our shelter is no-kill - nobody on death row! and most of baby kits & their moms are fostered, to socialize them, so it's easier to get a "forever home".
