Last evening I went to a monthly art gathering where friends get together to show art they’ve created based on a theme. There’s an outdoor cat named Otis who became the inspiration for today’s drawing. He entered the room meowing at everyone. Then he sat on my lap for about a minute before he was off exploring somewhere else. Later, we noticed paw prints on the roof and hood of the car. This morning, I was thinking that’s exactly how ideas can be. They come when they please, making a grand entrance. They disappear when they feel like it. Sometimes they don’t come when you call them. Other times you discovered they’ve left their mark where you didn’t want it. But when they come and stay for a while and purr, it feels pretty good.
awesome (~_~) I live in the country and every cat for miles shows up when I get home from work because I will feed them, they keep the reptile and bug population down, anyway there are sometimes 12 cats that come for a free meal and yes, paw prints on the car in the morn. a small price to pay for peace of mind, living on the water where water snakes reign. except for where the cats gather (grin)
Great post Tim (~_~)
Hi Art, 12 cats! I can just picture it. It was funny seeing the paw prints on the car.

Perfect analogy Tim … gosh, does your mind ever rest?!
Hi Bonnie, I think the only time my minds rests is when I’m sleeping, but isn’t everyone like that?

Too cute. I love it, that’s exactly how my ideas are sometimes. I get them at the most random times, and usually late at night, so I get up, got jot it down, and then go back to bed and get to work on that idea in the morning. Thanks for sharing. Love these drawings.
Hi Rachel, I know how you feel getting up and writing notes. Sometimes I don’t get up, I just repeat it over and over in my head, hoping I will remember it in the morning – ha ha! Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t. Thanks for letting me know you’re enjoying the drawings – always love to hear that!
Very well put. TFS
