SSS - Siamese Shadow


This is our elderly Siamese mix (18 1/2 - over 100 in people years) taking in the morning sun through the skylight above. His given name is Yoda, which has evolved into Yodi Bodhi - the enlightened cat - master of light and dark. He has taught us much wisdom about the shadow in our own lives, inviting us to see the shadow within the *context* of the light...

Wisdom in the shadow there is... hmmm?
Yodi Bodhi

  7. HE IS SO CUTE! I can tell of his wisdom! Over 100, huh? He doesn't look a day past 40! :) GREAT shadow shot, too! I've always wanted a Siamese cat! My hubby, too... I'll have to show him this picture!
    P.S.
    I do a pretty good Yoda impression and read that "quote" with my best Yoda voice! LOL!
