It’s a hazy shade of summer down on the allotment, everything’s blooming, colourful chaos. I slipped through security and wandered into the sunset, meeting a gorgeous little ginger cat who rolled around and posed for pictures. How do cats know it’s a camera? Little Ginge reminded me of the Late Great Sparky, my beloved super-sized tom cat who features elsewhere on The Vibes. The bees were buzzing in the dying rays of the sun, refusing to pose for the camera – just too plain busy! Good to see so many of them.

“Hello? Yes it’s true! It’s amazing – they just do exactly what you tell them to! It’s like they understand us. Mine’s got two legs so I guess that makes him a butler… or chauffeur if we’re in the limo. Yes…three meals a day and central heating. Fabulous. Ok – gotta go, he’s coming! T’ra!”
I just watched The Lovely Bones and I’m in pieces. It made me think of my beloved ginger piglet, who I still miss two years after he passed away. A beautiful film which deals with the darkest of subjects and mixes comedy and tragedy to show the best and the worst in human nature.
The scene which set me off was the one which explored the idea of people finding subtle ways to say goodbye after they’ve departed. I’ve felt something like this on several occasions, indefinable but with almost absolute certainty. It’s reassuring to feel that there are connections between us which last forever. So, now, who threw that snowball?
For Herman, his mother, Jones and Sparky.
