Notice to Our Readers: We are halting publication of the Significato Journal. It's been a lovely experience, but we have found that with limited time, we need to focus our efforts in new directions (which include book publishing). We have started to move content to our personal websites (https://peterfalkenbergbrown.com and https://kimmysophiabrown.com (Kim's website is not ready yet)). When that process is completed, we'll send out a final email to our SJ subscribers and invite you all to subscribe to our individual subscription lists. We'll post links to our other writers too, so that you can find their work. More to come... [Peter and Kim - May 26, 2020]
On the sofa on a hot summer day
Sep 22, 2009
I sit with my left hand fitting on top of the well-groomed head of our cat, My fingers between his perky ears and lean jaw That lean into the massaging of my hand, which in turn, draws from him purrs and rubs and tufts of black hair which float away like milkweed in the breeze. Meanwhile, my right hand cradles the head of our yellow lab, her eyes contentedly closing and opening as I rub the indentation between them. I feel the velvet earflaps, stroke the muzzle and throat, and work my fingers under her collar, scratching around as she presses herself into my hand. If I stop an imploring paw swipes at me. Each of these friends takes pleasure from my hands. And I take pleasure in them, through my hands, feeling the warmth, affection and simpatico we share.
Kimmy Sophia Brown has loved humor and music and freedom for as long as she can remember.She is especially passionate about the environment and caring for animals.
