My sweet Babyboy became suddenly ill last week with a rare, genetic virus “Feline Infectious Peritonitis.” Within 3 days he was hospitalized inpatient in diabetic shock with acute ketoacidosis.
I am heartbroken and devastated. Spaz, my beloved companion for the past 8 years has left his earthly body, after being stricken ill suddenly last week, by a rare untreatable genetic FIP virus “Feline Infectious Peritonitis.” It rapidly took him down and took over his body and organ systems within days. I held him in my arms as he took his last breath. The week before he was my spazzy full of life cat with a voracious appetite and a mischievous mind. Now he is gone and don’t know how I will go on…I feel like I will never be happy again. He is forever in my heart.
Sleep with the Angels sweet baby boy. I love you. Until we meet again…

My dear friends,
Please pray for my Babyboy SPAZ…during the past week he became ill, saw the vet Wednesday, then over a 24-hour period he stopped all activity & stopped eating. I brought him to hospital for inpatient emergency care – he may have a rare virus called Feline Infectious Peritonitis for which there is no treatment & breaks his systems down rapidly. On top of that, he is in diabetic crisis with acute ketoacidosis. He was a normal healthy active cat up until 2 weeks ago – now he is unable to eat or drink or move. I am devastated – he has always been strong & hardy…only 8 years old! PLEASE PRAY FOR HIM, PRAY FOR A MIRACLE. I already have paid $3,800 in 2 days to at least give him a fighting chance – I owe that to him & more – he is the light of my life! It is in God’s hands now. He is my miracle cat, I got him at 8 weeks old on the day my brother passed, 8 years ago. He was born from a miraculous conception, his feline mom mating with a Siamese male who lived in the same household & had just been NEUTERED!
Thank you for your prayers… Love & Light … Namasté … Lisa #OneLove
May we learn from history and not repeat the same mistakes. May we learn from non-human animals that gratuitous violence and killing is not inherent in our animal nature, but rather a result of the deliberative process and conscious free-will by which humans choose to act (ironically, it is this evolved higher order of thinking that separates humans from animals.)
It is, ultimately, up to us, as rational, thinking beings to decide our common fate. Together, as one cohesive unit, we must make a choice that benefits and preserves humankind, the animal kingdom and our shared home planet.
Choose LOVE not Hate, PEACE not War!

Here is an animated gif created from several of my sunset shots, allowing me to revisit one moment in time.
If I could save the sky in a bubble,
capture clouds and horizon so blue,
I would be relieved of the mind-numbing trouble
of describing their beauty to you.
If I could save the sunset in a bottle,
The first thing that I’d want to do,
Is replace all your heartache and suffering
With the glow of divine love and truth.

There exists a harmony in nature like no other, a divine order and rhythm that is borne out of perfect chaos. It is by this process that the ever-expanding universe was created, the heavens and the Earth, the darkness and the light, all perfectly aligned in time and space, a precise balance and dynamic flow that never misses a beat or a turn of the wheel, a state of perpetual motion and constant change that define the infinite cycle of life. Has the sun ever failed to follow the moon? Has light ever failed to arise out of darkness or darkness to diminish light? Everything has a time, a season, a place…each moment, each breath, each experience is unique, fleeting and transitory…part of an infinite process set in motion upon the dawn of creation…an intensity of presence first rising, then falling, eventually dissipating into non-existence, while the next one manifests to replace the last…like a wave being swallowed up by the ocean…or a raindrop disappearing upon contact, merging with the Earth, or a larger body of water…once the part is absorbed into the whole, it ceases to exist as a separate entity…like all forms and phenomena in the physical plane of existence, this too shall pass. Take comfort in the present moment, just as it is, there is nothing else to attend to and nowhere else to be, except Here and Now.
