Some Days

I find I often have mixed feelings about our new place in Seattle. We (both human and feline residents) really loved our apartment in Brooklyn with all of its crazy old details and ramshackle backyard, and sometimes I think it's strange that we came back West in large part so that we could enjoy the outdoors more, and then proceeded to move into a place that has no outdoor space whatsoever – not a yard, or even a balcony. But there are also days, like last Friday, when I walk into the living room at sunset and catch the view.

On these days I explain to Mr. Littlejeans and Inez that it's okay if we have to put off that backyard vegetable garden and chicken coop for just a little while longer.
