Although I notoriously seem to be always working, I do try to find moments of peace in the chaos. About a week ago, my husband Neil and I attended Tanabata: The Star Festival at Rancho Los Alamitos Historic Ranch & Gardens:
“Festivities are based on a traditional Asian tale about two constellations, Vega and Altair. Separated by the Milky way because they ignored their celestial duties, the two amorous constellations are allowed to see one another only once a year. This day allows all to make their wishes, be they practical, poetic, humorous or make believe and watch them be carried by the winds up to the heavens.”
We’ve also been creating a bit of sanctuary at our home. We purchased some plants and bought a comfy chair for our covered patio. It was intended for the human occupants, but the cats are clearly appreciating our efforts!
