The Magician

The MagicianYou can do Magic
You can have any thing that you desire…

This song by Russell Glyn Ballard was the earworm that nibbled my lobe when The Magician appeared today.

Pausing for a moment to think it would be nice to bring my kitty – gone three days this morning – back from the forest she ran into.

Laughing to myself, I thought it would take Magic for that to happen.

I have lived in the forest for a long time. Like a redwood, I would shrivel anywhere else.

I am odd this way, because most people only visit these wild places briefly and could not bear to be away from the bustle of living in town. There are accommodations a family must make living so close to Nature. Raccoon, bobcats, feral pigs, and big mountain cats (read as: lions!), not to mention smaller critters… and that’s just the wildlife.

It has it blessings, being out here, but one of the harsh realities is the likelihood that a kitty gone into the woods for three days probably won’t return.

Then this card appeared and I dared to hope. Soon, a skittering in my glance out the garden window caught my eye as missing kitty, Yoda ran down the path. A coaxing with a can of tasty cat food later and soon her tidy paws were set to grooming her little face and giant ears. I knew she was alright again.
