Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
“I would like to see anyone, prophet, king or God, convince a thousand cats to do the same thing at the same time.”Neil Gaiman
Cats are mysterious creatures that charm us with their antics and comfort us with their soft purring. I read that petting a cat helps us to meditate and causes a release of oxytocin, which has been found to increase our emotional perception. But do we truly understand them? They retain remarkable control over their lives, coming and going as their please. There are many books that will help you connect with cats, some promising techniques to train cats, even to learn cat language.
But I have another source of expertise. Today, I am republishing Misty’s Adventures on Tea Toast & Trivia. Dave Astor and Misty are a dynamic duo. Together, they provide insight on the strong and vibrant relationship humans have with these amazing creatures.
“What greater gift than the love of a cat.” Charles Dickens
Dave Astor and I are once again bridging the 3,923 kilometers between New Jersey and Vancouver to bring you the first podcast in the Misty series. Every morning, without fail, my mother, Frances, and I meet up via Facebook with Misty and Dave on their adventures. This morning, when we went into the woods, Misty advised that he thought that theatrical productions may be coming back. Misty is a futurist, making brilliant predictions about the future based on current trends.
Following Misty is not for the faint of heart. You will walk on fences, jump from opens grates, run across the grass, meet up with deer, and trudge through the snow. Misty reminds me that living in the now, embracing the power of being present creates a sense of well-being and of being whole.
I am thrilled that Dave has graciously agreed to share Misty’s remarkable story.
This is your invitation to put the kettle on and add to the conversation. We would love to hear your thoughts on Tea Toast & Trivia.
Thank you for joining Dave, Misty, and me on Tea Toast & Trivia. Thank you, Dave and Misty, for sharing your stories.
My daily walks with Misty and Dave continue to inspire me. Misty’s wisdom and Dave’s humour is a compelling combination. You can connect with Dave on Dave Astor on Literature. There is always an adventure in reading and excellent conversations waiting for your arrival on his blog.
