The Garden of Proserpine

From too much love of living,
From hope and fear set free,
We thank with brief thanksgiving
Whatever gods there be:
That no life live forever;
That dead men rise up never;
That even the weariest river
Winds somewhere safe to sea.
by, A.C. Swinburne

I didn't post this yesterday, because I just couldn't. Yesterday was a year without our dear sweet Horton. I always thought those people who mourned their pets "forever..." were weird or something. Then we lost him.

Love you sweet Horton. You were part of us for so long. For the beginning of us. Thank you for your love. I am so thankful that we had you for as long as we did. Hope you're enjoying Heaven!


  1. OMG, I can't believe it's been a year. I think about Horton when I know I'm going to your house ... and especially when I know I'll be cat-sitting for you. I have NO doubt he's enjoying Heaven ... he was there to show Nalu & Samson the way. :)

  2. He was the cutest kitten. The cutest. And, was always there. At the very beginning. Funny how you just fall into thinking they'll always be around. He is missed. He was such a sweetheart and fit in so well as part of your family.

    I remember him climbing Joel's Army trench coat. The little scrambler.

    No doubt that he's having a great time on the other side! ;)


Comments are great. They are like the Grande, 2-pump, Cinnamon-dolche, non-fat latte of the computer...Really! Thanks for the bloggin' coffee!
