kittens togetherness: two tabbies napping with one using the other for a pillow with a quote from Marielle Heller:" With all of the bad things that are happening in the world right now, I think we need a message of togetherness and true unity. I believe that starts with personal reflection and then we can find kindness toward each other. "


I wanted a Spark about togetherness. I couldn’t think of two better representatives than kittens, Raleigh and Audrey. You may think you’ve seen this photo before, but the previous photo actually had Audrey using Raleigh as a pillow. If you missed that one, you can find it on the post, “Vet Visit Aftermath.”

I was unfamiliar with the author of today’s Spark, Marielle Heller, but what she said is absolutely perfect, as it represents exactly how I feel, and I bet many of you feel the same. Heller is a a 43-year-old, American writer, director, and actress. She is best known for directing the films The Diary of a Teenage Girl (2015), Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018), and A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019), as well as acting in The Queen’s Gambit (2020).

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. 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!”

There is no denying that Raleigh and Audrey are aww-worthy, so they will be participating in the Awww Mondays blog hop hosted by Comedy Plus. You can do the same by clicking on the Awww badge.
