A 5 year love affair…

I have to admit that I love 5 women…all equal…is that possible?  These 5 women came into my life 5 years ago in a workshop I was teaching on memoir.  When the series began I had no idea the impact they would have on my life.  As relationships come and go, these 5 have been a constant thread that runs through my life.  Whenever I am with them, I love catching up and hearing about what is happening in their lives.  The beauty of life is that we never know which encounters we share with others will have a lasting impact on us.  I have experienced loss, sadness, joy, happiness, pain, struggle, healing, renewal, and just plain old fashioned love from my time with these women.  I am forever grateful that they each saw the ad in The Desert Sun and took a chance on writing their memoirs with me.  So this Valentine’s Day…I want to express my love and gratitude to the 5 women who have made a difference in my life!  This is to you my 5 Feral Cats!feral cats pictureferal cats open house
