CATSTIR - the "C" word that rhymes with "dancer"

[kat - stur] noun: Code word for the other "C" word that rhymes with "dancer"

When I first posted about the "C" word that rhymes with "dancer," the search engines at google gobbled it up and started targeting me with advertisements for cancer cures, cancer doctors and goblets full of empty promises. So I changed the name. Now I get kitten and cat related advertisements that force me to smile.

Because all I have is NOW, I'm journaling my pilgrimage - documenting snippets of sheer panic, complacency, hope, fear, humor, honesty and whatever feels right.

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
