My cat Camo, short for Camouflaged Kitten, has not been a kitten for a long long time. I don’t know if it is the languorous, indoor life she has led, or all those hours of sleeping on my meditation pillow that has gotten my cat to 18 years old, but I hope it keeps working. This morning I had left a bowl of holy water on the floor from yesterday and, as Camo doesn’t come up the stairs very much now, I didn’t think to hide it from her. When I got out of the shower she was sitting there lapping it up. It was even cuter as she meowed at me for interrupting her. Always the little mystic kitten I guess.


It would be impossible to list the times Camo has made me happy. She has been my pet since the day she was born and her mom, Rosy, was my first pet ever. One time she happily napped while I used her as a pillow for a 2 hour nap myself, and when I got up she decided to just nap another 2 hours in the same spot. She used to sleep on my chest if I left my bedroom door open. She is the only being that has ever truly loved the smell of my sweaty feet. Camo has helped me through the hardest times of my life and has been petted and fluffed during some of my happiest. I wouldn’t be who I am today without her dainty impact.

Today I took a picture of the Knock Out Rose bush that I clipped a flower from this morning to be used as an offering in my worship of the Good. It was very xciting to me to find such nice flowers in my neighborhood for this event. It is only so often so I won’t be destroying anyone’s landscaping, but it can be hard to find fresh flowers that are well kept.

To try and help my blue mood I started the 100 Happy Days Challenge with a friend today. I’m doing it on Instagram under Kichara8. Since I’ve been watching the sunrise every morning I figured that is a good place to start. Now that I am doing it I want to keep putting more and more pictures up, though, haha. I don’t know if you’re supposed to only do one per day, but I guess I’ll just save the happiness for myself right now.

I’ve put many hours into studying and practicing Theurgy and Taoism. In both these spiritual traditions, the sun and moon are held in high regard. They are honored as the sources of life on earth and the physical representations of two of the most fundamental universal forces. Greeting the sunrise for me is a deeply calming and life affirming activity for me.
