Thank you all for your comments the past few days. I got some very interesting feedback, a few kick-in-the-pants, and a lot of support. :)

I believe in letting things out. Sometimes, that's all I'm trying to do here. I've kept journals off and on throughout my life. I've found that I stop journaling when things are rough. You'd think that would be when I most need it. But my thoughts get jumbled up and I can't write fast enough to get them out.

Those are the times when Spike becomes my therapist. I can ramble to him about what's happening and he just listens. Or doesn't. Who knows. But I find it works because: a) he never spills my secrets, b) he doesn't try to fix it or give advice, c) once it's out, I don't have to dwell on it anymore, and d) he's really, really cheap. ;)

Plus, I think he knows when I need comfort because he'll curl up beside me and I can pet him without worrying about losing a hand. :)

They say that pets help lower an owner's blood pressure. I suppose that's true of Spike. Although last night it got a little high when he decided to push a ceramic potpourri bowl off the kitchen counter! Stripey rotter!

I taught Freud everything he knew.

Go ahead, I'm listening. Just lounging while I listen. ZZZ…

      Awww!! I love Spike the Spikeologist!! I think the first shot is one of my favorites of him. I'm glad you are doing better. I've been a little out of blog touch myself but have been sneaking a quick peak at your posts when I can. I love how kittys just seem to know. Loki & Spook both will comfort me with their quiet presence when I need it. I love that about kittys!

      My cat, Moto, is my therapist too. And sometimes he provides some very vocal feedback; sometimes all it takes is a look.
      I can't tell you how wonderful it is to see Spike again! :D Your shots of him are always superb, and in the context of your words here, are almost light-hearted, and doting... despite his penchant for knocking over delicate things! ;)

      The 1st shot is a lovely portrait of Spike and the 2nd is lovely, too. I've missed seeing him these last few weeks.
