calendar-journal january pages

Can you see the paw prints in the journal page above? For the last three years, I've been walking almost daily down the same path from my house to the local market. Sometimes, midway I run into the strays that live in that area. I've been told they were dumped there a few years ago by someone. Several people in the community feed and care for them. The cats have been neutered by the island's "catch and release" program.

The Tabby cat seems to be the one always out and about waiting to be petted. One evening, I was late walking to the store and it was after dark. Without my realizing, the tabby followed me all the way into town! I had gone to the library then to the bank, and as I was on my way to the store, I heard a meow. It took me a few seconds to recognize that it was the Tabby's familiar meow. As I looked around in the dark, I caught sight of him. My heart dropped as I saw him there in the bank's parking lot, in the dark, amongst the cars.

I walked him back to his area where he lives. He is such a sweetheart, and if my circumstances were different, I'd adopt him and the other two. Since that incident, I am switching up the route that I walk.

Sometimes I don't have anything in mind or sight to draw, so I just have fun writing, doodling and making marks on the page. I'm really liking the calendar-journal I put together. I try to draw and/or write in it daily. Best of all, I get to play with all my fountain pens, dip pens and ink!

  2. Lovely page Juana, glad the journal is going well. I felt sad for the cat in your story, he needs a home, ...what to do. They have obviously come to know and trust you...they will miss you but it's a good idea to change your route.

    I think the paw prints add to your artwork. I think I'd have difficulty leaving him behind. He'd obviously taken a liking to you ^..^
