Signposts

I Kept seeing Sean was a signpost,

or at least imagined he was.
We had him15 years,
1/2 the time I have lived in Vermont.

30 (ok +3) years ago I took anatomy& physiology for RN school.
It was the first biggest test of my metal.
My instructor handed me a dead formaldehyde preserved cat.
It actually looked a lot like Sean.

About 45 years ago in Illinois, my family had a cat who looked like Sean.
We named him Paca which is Swahili for black 
(according to the 26 language dictionary I had got at the 7th grade book fair)
Mom had a black cat statue which had Sean's posture.

So I see a pattern of black cats crossing my path about every 15 years,
maybe it has no meaning or relevance,
but if it does, for me they have all been good luck.

  1. We miss Sean terribly. We know there is no choice, he had a good life, all that. We miss him, he was a Best Cat.
