The Cat Chronicles

Shakti is eating the dregs of my morning smoothie. It is made of fresh pineapple and cherries with the usual powders and potions added. She is sitting on my desk and dipping her paw in the thick green mush, then licking it off her paw. ...

She was so avid about it that she almost knocked the glass off the desk, so I fetched a saucer and dumped it out. She was chowing it down, but now she is clawing at the carpet and convulsing as if she might hurl. She hasn't been keeping her cat food down very well lately. I'm worried about her. She has never vomited up smoothie before....I hope she doesn't. I think it is good for her too.

I'm worried about myself too. I don't know why, but the most distal knuckles on all my digits (fingers and toes) have begun to malfunction. I used to think that maybe I had gout, but was told no way.....so is this arthritis? The worst joints are my thumbs. Both thumbs crack past a bony growth when going from straight to bent. This has only become severe after the drumming at graduation. My hands were already irritated before that intense long drum session, and afterward they swelled up and were very cranky for a while. I guess no more drumming for me.

I could stop bitching and moaning about the decline of my body, I suppose. I find my own deterioration educational. I ate the SAD (standard American diet) for most of my life, and now that I understand the probable outcomes of that practice, I am anticipating them in myself. I don't know if I have made the shift in time. I don't know if I will be able to heal this body. I wish that reincarnation were real, and I would get a new body and still be the same person. But I don't believe. I will just have to wait and see.

It's time to go do laundry. I have already vacuumed this morning. And I need to do some research on ameobae for tonight's study circle.

The LJ cut worked but I don't know why your post posted three times.

I see the effects of aging on my body, too. I've been very hard on my body and am starting to pay for it now. It sucks. I think the key to continued movement as I get older is going to be exercise. I am going to have to stay on a good routine because just two or three days away from it cause me to stiffen up. Bleh.
