Oh, Artichoke Heart, I am so sorry to hear this. The Bean Bean was such an important "character" in this blog, and if it is possible to love a kitty without actually meeting him, I surely did love him, too. I am truly saddened for your loss.

AH - I am so sorry to hear of Bean's passing. I understand how very hard it is to lose a beloved furry family member...he will be missed.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Bean's personality was big enough to transmit into cyberspace with ease... your house must feel very empty without him.

Big hugs,

I loved your tales of yuki and bean. I hope you're still comforted by warm and furry critters at night.

I just found this entry of yours after having been remiss in my blog reading for some time. I am so very, very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you.

Who can say where death leads us? I recently lost my dear angel, Sparky. She was my muse as was Bean to you I am sure. You are a poet(and a good one at that) so you will understand the beauty of the eternal memories that not even death may defile.
One quick bit(sorry about the timing) but I have been studying Japanese Internment and have found your poems to be quite inspirational. I am actually doing a report on your poetry and would be ever so delighted to discuss them with you. I hope to emerge into the world of published poets soon, so to actually be able to talk to one would be trully invaluable. We'll see.
