One day at a time ~ this is enough.
Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone;
and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come.
Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.

His name is Billy.
He is not my cat.
He thinks he is
but in fact he is anybody's.
He belongs to next door,
but he wanders at will
half an hour at a time.
He sits and watches,
and moves on.
He lives his life to the fullest.
He makes friends everywhere he visits,
not too proud to accept a snack
or a loving gesture from a stranger.
He doesn't use my garden as a litter box
nor does he dig in my flower beds,
otherwise he is totally disobedient
and goes where he pleases
unafraid of the consequences.
I think I could learn from Billy.
