Cat Squares, 1

I just keep the pen moving…
Don’t think, just journal.
Keeping this sketchbook at my work desk I remember little things all day…
like the crazy stuff with the cats.
Fifteen minutes for most of these,
no thinking, just draw, then just write.

I’ve always loved squares.
Since I was an architect I’ve loved squares.
I don’t have bookshelves I have book squares.

If I were to add anything, it is that he reminds me of a Lab I knew,
“Throw the ball throw the ball throw the ball,” times infinity.
I taught Yaman to fetch and it is his favorite game.

Savitri too… but a different toy.

If you’ve ever stubbed your toe on one (and I am always the barefoot beach gurl)
you’d know why this is SO upsetting.  Damn picks….

Our studio is in an office/warehouse.
Yup those gridded ceiling tiles with drop-in lighting.

    Katie, I love that you taught Yaman and Savitri to fetch. Most people think that’s not possible, but I beg to differ. I had two kitties – Willie and Ace – who would fetch a little red ball and Q-tips respectively. Willie eventually tired of the red ball and I believe he dropped it over the side of the second-story patio in order to keep me from throwing it again. Gibbs will fetch straws, but only if he really wants to. It’s a crap shoot with him.

    You inspire me to start up with my journal again – to write every day experiences. It can be so cathartic…if one takes the time to do it.


    • It is my sanity now with my mom possibly on her way out….
      I had a lovely black cat (one of my favorite friends in the world) named Toes and he taught me that cats fetch….
      It takes a lot of squeals of delight in the training stages!
