Today’s Spark is being presented by special friends, Periwinkle and Stinky.



Periwinkle and Stinky are thankful to be friends, and I am super grateful to have a few good friends, some of them other bloggers.

Baltasar Gracián y Morales, the author of today’s Spark, was a 17th century Spanish Jesuit priest, baroque prose writer and philosopher. His writings were lauded by Schopenhauer and Nietzsche.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie has been taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Unfortunately, during this break, Annie has been the victim of a hacker. This has continued to keep her off-line and caused her much distress. Please continue to send prayers to Annie and her family as they work to get their lives back to normal.

Many of us believe in Annie’s vision: “If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”

Awww Mondays


These two cutie pies are joining the blog hop at Comedy Plus, as they are both super awww-dorable.

And while they are here, they want to remind you to join them for their next adventure tomorrow at Friends Furever.

That is true. Over my life, I’ve pushed most of my friends away. It makes me sad sometimes to think about. The worst part is the pushing away was more for over-empathy – I just couldn’t separate my feelings from theirs and I couldn’t fix whatever was paining them.

Beautiful spark! I find that friendship with cats takes at the most a year to cement, with the ferals anyway, much quicker for the domesticated. Humans however, that is more iffy.
