I live in a modest apartment. I use a secondhand dining room table as my rickety desk. I make words come to life by the speed of my thoughts and fingers.
This is how I write.
Along comes a cat. Yet I power through, attempting to ignore warmth for the sake of accomplishment.
Then, I surrender. Because a welcome distraction is always welcome. It reminds me of life—its tangibility, its humor, its comfort.

Beautiful, Britt! 🙂
Aw…thanks, Dianne! : )
A beautiful reminder that we should all surrender from time to time; thank you 🙂
And a lot of time animals, children, and nature are the only reminders as they have no goals or obligations…they just are. : )
The tangibility of life as a distraction. As you say, sometimes it’s good for us. Well said, Britt.
Thanks, T.W. Especially with my focus on writing this year, I feel like I need to draw back and appreciate more.
I am distracting myself by reading your blog hahaha Great post!
Yay! I’m honored to be your distraction. : )
Great post, and great pix too! It’s really hard to see a cat’s affection these days! 🙂
LOL! Not around this house. These cats are ridiculously affectionate. We’re lucky humans. : )
Wow! I never knew cats could be so affectionate! I have a dog at home, so I know how the feeling is like! Cheers to pet lovers!! 🙂
It’s all in the love, right? If we respect and cherish them, they will return the favor. : )
So true!! 🙂 😀
That’s an awesome distraction! Lovely! 🙂
Thanks, Subhan! Glad you enjoyed the furry distraction.
AWWW Britt,she is so pretty…….she was so lucky to get you for a forever home……
Isn’t she? And, little did she know she would become a famous blog cat one day. : )
I’m thinking that bloggers love cats. I could be wrong, generalizing. However here it goes, people who love cats tend to be calmer. Calm people can truly write (it’s all the words in our head that isn’t calm!). What does everyone think?
p.s. My cat Noir is the one that won’t leave me alone while I type. 🙂 Welcoming distraction indeed.
Noir…what a fantastic name! Love it. That’s an interesting idea you have there about loving cats, calmness, and writing. : )
