Commentary - What I Learned from Cinder

The day I brought Cinder home, she was scared. I introduced her to my big sweet dog and my other cat. She was scared. She finally jumped out of the box and found a place to hide. She spent most of the next eleven years hiding. Eventually I acquired a wife who had her own cat. Cinder continued hiding under the bed, but it was harder with an extra person and a kitten around. Eventually Cinder couldn't just wait until no one was around to sneak off to the litter box, since my wife was usually sitting near the path. Slowly Cinder got braver. She came out when we were around. Eventually she discovered that we didn't try to eat her. Finally she started coming around us for a light pat on the back or a little attention. Not long after, she died of kidney failure. She spent eleven years hiding from imagined dangers and 18 months enjoying life. Cinder taught me not to spend my life hiding from imagined dangers.

Support this Web Site

I hope that you find this web site helpful. It started as alight-hearted alternative to my portfolio site, and then grew. This web site is for your benefit and enjoyment and I make no profit on it. For ten years it has been supported primarily from my regular paycheck as a Set Designer and there haven't been many the last few years. I can no longer run it without help. Alternative funding is needed. Only recently I tried advertising as a way to balance the budget, but it still doesn't cover the costs. A non-tax deductable donation helps cover the cost of operating this web site and may be made to Kesign Design Consulting through PayPal.
