Oh Them Changes!

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted, over a year, and in that time there have been many changes in my life. To sum up, I’ve gone from being a married man, surrounded by other family members, owning a home, living in the suburbs, owning a car; to a single man, renting an apartment, living downtown, alone, without a car. So many changes in rapid succession, some of them on the same day almost too much to bear. The first month was the hardest but thanks to support from my community of family, friends and Church Of The Transfiguration, I have made the transition.

Did I say alone? Well, there is my new roommate, a cat named Tolkien. He, in his own way, has been a source of comfort and amusement and even inspiration. Inspiration? From a cat? No I haven’t completely lost it. He inspires me because like the lilies of the field, he just is. He doesn’t agonize over how to be a cat, he just does it. I find that an inspiration.


Tolkien J. Cat (he hasn’t told me what the J. stands for).

    Dear Chris,I feel you have handled the changes in your life style extremely well! Yes you have family,church and friends to help you but mostly you have an inner strength you probably didn’t know you had. Love Mom. Give Tolkien a pat for me.
