six years ago, my hubbahubba gave me one of the best presents of my life – our kitty uma. we adopted her from a local shelter, so when i was invited to participate in the east bay humane society art auction, i thought back on my first experience with adopting. we got her as a kitten, she barely slept and ran around day and night… but every once in awhile there were lovely moments of peace. ^_^

our lives feel more full of laughter and love because of uma. this is one of the pieces i’m contributing.
