Bujang had a quiet birthday yesterday. We gave him extra treats with his dinner - salmon and he ate them all up very happily. The other kitties also had a share but not the same amount. He was very noisy. I think he thought we forgot his birthday. He chased all the boys about and invited me to play hide and seek. It was quiet but I think quite enjoyable.

The Visitor. He needs a name since he has adopted us...
We did not have the chance to meet the old aunty to tell her of the burial but she came down anyway at the time where we would usually feed the WildBunch. She was very quiet when she saw the urn and then she made a choice of the tree. Its a pretty tall tree and we can see it from far away.
There were four of us. Cousin R and I and the old aunty and her good friend. After we buried the ashes, her friend asked us if we had brought an offering. When we told her we didn't bring any, she said she would get some milk to pour over the site. The old aunty cried a little after the burial but she said Cal would be happy where she was now.
It was a small private service and I think it was a closure for every one of us.

there is a child in my heart.
when she feels that she is not in sync with the world, she would hide in a corner.
there are songs for her to sing, riddles to solve, memories to contemplate, dreams to be picked up and collected like fallen leaves
in the corner, she breathes lightly, walks slowly
the spaces between the notes becomes music
there is a beautiful new world in the silence and blank space
there is a child in my heart
each time she hides in the corner, it is but an temporary absence because
she needs timeto find her place in the world again
Thank you aunty_p and cat_aunty for translating the blurb for me.
I did think from the pictures that it must be about finding your space in the world. Where silence and time is your friend.
So I will probbaly go to Kinokuniya to get the rest of the books :)

Bujang decided on a new vantage point where he could see sll the happenings under cover...
Ok this is the blurb. If anyone can tell me what it says, I would be grateful. I think I will try to find more of his/her book once I know who it is.
