What is a soul? It's like electricity - we don't really know what it is, but it's a force that can light a room.
I have spent a great deal of time since Sunday thinking about this subject of soul. First, Bella was missing. She went, in my experience, from a happy, cheerful, curious cat to suddenly she was gone. I feared her spirit was fled, that I would find bones and skin. Then, she returned but so listless and lethargic, so sick, that it was hard to feel much life force coming from her, and now, she is ready with a huge meow, and very clear about her wants and needs. She not only lights up a room. She lights up the whole house.
It is to consider on this clear, cold day, well, with apologies to those of you in the midwest and east. It is cold for here after these last few days, and it feels like a day to consider the wonders of each beating heart.
