I thought of the wicked witch and her magical slippers. It made me smile to remember how terrified I once was of the stories I imagined.
I thought of black cats and wondered. Are they signs of good luck...or bad? Not that it matters. This cat was merely pretend.
For a moment I thought happy thoughts. I connected to childhood delight...and laughter....and light....and well-meaning humor.
I'm grateful for that.
