phantom kitty

buddy is so funny. his hearing evidently isn't very directional. i make a pretty good meow noise, and even if he is looking at me, he starts off in the other direction, searching for that elusive kitty. just now, i was in working on evolution 8 and i took a break to tease him. he was looking right at me when i did it, but he started looking everywhere else. i guess he just can't believe the noise comes from me. he is convinced i am hiding this cat from him. when he didn't find it inside and i kept meowing, he ran through his doggie door and around to the window, stood up and peered inside, hoping to catch me/us unawares. :)

this is for a friend who is grieving. you know who you are.

I Grieve
Peter Gabriel

It was only one hour ago -
It was all so different then.
Nothing yet has really sunk in
Looks like it always did
This flesh and bone.
It's just the way that we are tied in
But there's no one home.
I grieve ........... for you
You leave ........... me
So hard to move on
Still loving what's gone.
Still, life carries on
Carries on and on and on and on
The news that truly shocks
Is the empty, empty page.
While the final rattle rocks
Its empty, empty cage.
And I can't handle this ---
I grieve ........... for you
You leave ........... me
Let it out and move on
Missing what's gone.
Still, life carries on
Still, life carries on and on and on
Life carries on in the people I meet
Everyone that's out on the street
In all the dogs and cats
In the flies and rats
In the rod and the rust
In the ashes and the dust.
Life carries on and on and on and on
Life carries on and on and on
Life carries on and on and on and on
Life carries on and on and on
Just the car that we ride in
The home we reside in
The face that we hide in
The way we are tied in -
As life carries on and on and on and on
Life carries on and on and on
Did I dream this belief
Or did I believe this dream?
Now I will find relief
I grieve .............
