"There Are A Few Things In Life That Are So Beautiful They Hurt"

There are a few things in life that are so beautiful they hurt:

swimming in the ocean when it rains

reading alone in empty libraries

the sea of stars that appear when you're miles away from the neon lights of the city

bars after 2 am

walking in the wilderness

all the phases of the moon

the things we do not know about the universe

and you


 Some things never leave us. It may seem silly that I still mourn my little white cat, Kinsey, but I do. We had to euthanize her after first her rear legs, then her front legs went. She was in pain. It was obvious. She was 16 years old. She had a good life with us, but until her legs went out, she was still pretty active. We had someone come to the house to euthanize her so that she wouldn't have to go to the vet. She was so frightened of the vet. I miss her. It's been four months, but I miss her.
