A twilight cloak of silvered crystal.



It seemed that it the night the silver moon threw down her beautiful gown to adorne the earth, for in the twilight time we stepped out into a world that sparkled.




Ice and fire, silver and flame, and the earth so quietly wrapped in a shroud of cloud.






We stalked through frost like a burning string of amber and paused to leave paws printed in crystals, to say that we are cats and we have walked this way.





Almost home we laughed to see how Rosie was confused by stone water in the trough. And we marvelled at the beauty of the cow, though Elmo envied her her fierce horns.

You have lovely pawprints. One of my former roommates left her paw prints in the wet cement of Cindee's Studio floor. When the contractor saw it, he was angry, but Cindee loved them and left the cement floor uncovered except for some blue paint, so she could always see Mignonette's pawprints.
Minnie is gone now to the great cat garden in the sky, but we remember her whenever we are in the Studio.
