“Zen Cat”


Calm cat

At rest, Elsa Clair exemplifies serenity. Tranquility pours off her and fills the space around her.

I can’t help but stop and bask in her calmness.

I take a moment and just watch her.

She gazes back.

The peace is contagious. My goals, priorities, trivia fade into the background.

My breathing slows. There is stillness. I feel centered.

Living with a cat is like living with a Zen master.


What do you learn from your pets?
