Loved this!! Great depiction of what both beautiful creatures are meant to do in this world. Yup, the cat gets spoiled. What can we cat lovers say?

Of the many instructors, teachers and professors rarely did I experience most of them to be in a state of grace as they shared what was to be taught. This author and a professor I had at Central Washington University who taught a class on children's literature have that grace. When one teaches in a state of grace it is simply a pleasure to hear and take in the love they have for the subject. It doesn't feel like "studying" or a "job", it feels like delightful playing; out of which comes inspiration, awareness and new possibilities of joy for the student.

For me your last sentence says it all. A writer needs to study and learn. It's part of the job.

I am a movie buff for some of the reasons you explain so well in your article. But part of a movie's healing effect for me is to escape and if while I escape I find, some meaningful philosophies, all the better. Good write. R

I admit that I enjoy watching movies and love a very good story even if it is a horror movie. The last one that I watched Bruce Almighty was very funny and my husband thought it a riot in that he related to the character that Jim Carrey played. I found that Tom Arnold was also very good at comedy. Then of course some of the other movies was particular interesting.

Interesting poem, Bill, and well-written ... but if you find the woman who owns your love, recognizes your vulnerabilities, knows your fears, learns your ugly secrets and loves you even more because of them, she holds your heart in both her hands, and yours will never lose its way ...

A beautiful thought. It seems hearts stray, walk and wander these days and in the past. Only death ends a true and deep love.

Reading your writing, I feel as though I was there. You pen the experience in swift recitation as though breathless from the exchange. I love the descriptions of the loved one and your playful attitude. Nicely framed, well-crafted and outstanding pace and flow.

Interesting thoughts, and speaking of lies and truths, I think your name would be more truthful as Bill Bradson. :)

Touching...finding the right fit is the key. Not everyone you meet is. The best company you will ever have is yourself.
This is a good work and I enjoyed the read.
