A rainy day

Spend some quality time with a friend…

Gira and Mr Killums

I’ll be signing-off here now for what remains of this year…

Wishing you all a fun, festive (and friendship-filled :) close to 2012,
and a very happy, fulfilling and creative 2013!

After several weeks of posts about my travels in a far off land I think it’s time for me to face reality and return to the streets of Amsterdam! And what better way to do that than with a fifth instalment in my ongoing (if infrequent!) ‘Amsterdam Cats in Windows’ series…

hello, sailor!

Spring (must surely be!) in the air, if the friskiness that’s been ensuing outside my window recently is anything to go by. (The below image is an animated GIF – it might take a moment or two to load properly).

I like the transitional, almost-but-not-quite spring colour palettes provided by these two charming couples…

Ha! Just as I moved my mouse to click on the ‘Publish’ button it started snowing again here (first time since Christmas)! I hope no one has laid any eggs…

from the MoMA‘s ‘B Movie Posters’ postcard collection: ‘Not of this Earth’ 1957 dir. Roger Corman, ‘Mothra’ 1961 dir. Ishiro Honda, ‘Tarantula’ 1955 dir. Jack Arnold, ‘Attack of the Crab Monsters’ 1957 dir. Roger Corman

 

In the spirit of the day, here’s a scar(il)y lo-fi monster movie for your viewing pleasure.

Let the T E R R O R begin!

- A month has passed since we had to say goodbye to our beautiful, gentle Gira. I still hear the clickety-clack of his claws on the wooden floors. From the corner of my eye I think I glimpse the tip of a silver tail rounding a doorframe. I hear his peeps and purrs and calls for breakfast in the murmurings of the central heating coming on at 6am. I mistake a castoff garment on the bed for a curled-up, contented cat. And for a brief moment my heart soars… and then breaks all over again.

And yes, that is Gira perched in the only lit window keeping watch over the sleeping city and communing with a thylacine-headed ghost-dragon...
