The Longest Day

sol·stice  [sol-stis, sohl-]
1. Astronomy. a.either of the two times a year when the sun is at its greatest distance from the celestial equator: about June 21, when the sun reaches its northernmost point on the celestial sphere, or about December 22, when it reaches its southernmost point. Compare summer solstice, winter solstice.
b.either of the two points in the ecliptic farthest from the equator.
2. A furthest or culminating point; a turning point.
Yesterday was the second anniversary of Murphy’s passing and for me it has proven pivotal.  On the walk I often pushed myself physically almost to yet at times past the point of punishment.  I sustained a knee injury years ago and there were nights in our tent after a rigorous stretch of road, the pain would radiate so intensely I couldn’t sleep, not even for a second. But when he morning came, I’d decamp and pack up the boys and get back on the road.  
And I have exacted the same standard on myself emotionally and with the same fervor.  A lot of people I know don’t, as feeling extreme sadness frightens them.  The second Murphy was diagnosed in 2010 just weeks after the completion of the walk, I already knew I was on the downward slope of a different kind of journey.  But I was unafraid for myself.  
You see, in the two years since, some people ask me, “Why do you let it hurt you so much?”  Perhaps the only answer I have, the only one that makes sense to me is, “It is my way of honoring him.”  
And that I have.  
I was at the Farmer’s Market yesterday cooking up some Tex-Mex Tatties and since it fell on this anniversary, the Chef’s Special was the Murphy Tattie.  And that the origin of his name is Irish, the inspiration was my interpretation of Banger and Mash.  It was a huge hit.  
One customer came up and I was launching into a story about how the Tattie was named after the dog I lost to cancer was….
“WAIT!”, he interrupted.  ”You mean THIS has dog meat in it????”  
The smart ass me kicked into high gear.  ”Yeah, I said casually.  I’ve had Murphy in a freezer for two years just waiting to use his meat for this recipe.”  
Everyone one in the crowd burst into laughter.
Given all that I have born witness to, I suppose it should be of no surprise that the week of the solstice is also the anniversary of so many triumphs and tragedies.  
It was a good, good day and not for one second did sadness set in.  
Thank you Murphy for giving me the strength to love and hurt and the strength to endure…
Postscripts to Tish:  Thank you for planting the white rose bush in honor of Murphy and the photo of the budding blossom yesterday.

This is the smallest mildest form of reaction I can have, where the skin sort of gets eaten away and the dark spots are either scabs or what’s left of the skin there. Now you know why I’m so paranoid.

How many kitties does Teresa really have?

I’ve spent a lot of time this week at parties and music gatherings with my friends and the No. 1 question people always ask is, How many cats do you have?

Well, I never tell the number any more because people who don’t have pets or who only have one or two freak out to hear of any more than three, and I DO have more than three! I do rescue work with the help of a friend who owns a cat clinic and I have a $ 600 per month holistic pet food and litter bill, need I say more? There are CATS in my house … along with electric catboxes. It’s tidy and clean and most people come in and say, Gee, you can’t really tell you have cats here. So there!

The take-home message that surfaced was really that I need to help people understand rescue, so I steer the conversation to what kind of rescue work I do. One friend (who has gossiped about my kitties) said she didn’t even know that I did rescue! The nature of rescue is that you take in special needs kitties, get them better or socialized or whatever, and adopt them out.

So I talk not about the “numbers” but about the “work” and the “quality”, you know, like, two months ago someone brought me a little kitten that someone had locked in a carrier and thrown away in a dumpster, and I’m helping that kitten to calm down and be ready for adoption… and right before Thanksgiving, a sick cat went up a very tall tree and was stuck there for a week before the fire department came and shot it out of the tree with a high-powered firehose. (Don’t worry, they caught him in a net!). THAT kitty is doing much better and will be adopted out probably after the first of the year.

It makes for a much healthier, less gossipy kind of conversation.
