And finally she is looking at you

Lucinda In The Ashes

If you think your eye caught a glimpse of something unusual here - I won't contradict you.

I have a big, old and beautiful fireplace in my house, build many years ago and made entirely of natural stone.
In the South African winter I light it every evening and the fire burns through the night.

And I have a little ginger cat who talks all day long to me in a language that I have come to understand by now. She must have been something completely different in an earlier re-incarnation because she loves fire.
She is mad about it, adores fire. Not only heat and warmth. But real burning, crackling fire

Normally in the afternoon she waits already in front of the fireplace for me and watches me intensely when I stack the wood and prepare everything for the evening. She waits eagerly for the moment I light the fire.

Lucinda loves to watch the flames and the play of light. 
In front of the fireplace is where she likes to stay and sleep.

But now she has taken it to another level !!!!!!!

As soon as the fire has burned down enough she climbs INSIDE the fireplace.
The logs in the back are still so hot you burn your fingers when you touch them.!!!!! 

But please do not question her decision!

I was worried, very worried about her long and bushy tail when I saw this for the first time
And when I told her my concerns she just gave me an annoyed purr.

I also told her that cats are supposed to be neat and clean animals
and do not sleep in the ashes
which she ignored !

It's too nice here and I truly enjoy the warmth.

Stinky, dusty, ashy little cat !

That is my vision

and its adds up to something like 24,7 years

to remind me my of this goal frequently I have collected some old suitcases that have without no doubt seen more in their lives than I do and 
placed them in a strategically important place

close to my door

The name tags of the ones who have traveled the road before me I have left in their well-deserved place.
It is important to keep them.

A very beautiful specimen. I have created a black, night sky background for this image.
It seems as if he is floating through the universe like a giant space shuttle.


He was still complete, no arms and legs or other body parts missing.!

The Alien Crab

Today everything is about crabs. There are days when the sea spits them out in great number and varieties and you can find them just like that on the beach
