Today I Am Cat by kt8ird

Today I Am Cat

Today I am Cat
You can see
A bleaker, darker side to me

Meetings all week
Work left to do
Rainbow wigs and stomach flu

Not asking for much
Just a few hours
I do not want to make you cower

Parades, basketball
And slumber parties
Superfunmom, what a dummy

Give me this day
And I implore
Don't drop a teaspoon on the floor.

~Cat

(Catherine aka Kate)

Exploring another alter ego. Split personality some would say. Perhaps reading too much Shel Silverstein (NEVER!).

Love the poem. I recognize this look. I see it in my own daughter when i try to photograph her. Your portraits are really expressive and beautiful. Love the mask.

There's steel in that stare and a hint of menace around the mouth - I'd say your alter ego was more alley-cat than domestic moggie!

Excellent Kate - fun shot and a great alternative selfie. Hope you're feeling better and that the family is letting you have some much needed 'you' time today.

I like the alter ego: super fun mom by day, catwoman by night. Purrrfect.

@vignouse Caught the sneer, huh? Trying to add a little bit of character there. And no worries, the girls are taking a much needed break as well so everyone is in their own space. Blissful for now!

@philcameron59 :) Ha! Are you saying that Santa is watching? I am in big trouble!!

You really got flashed I see it in your eyes. I tried this morning. They went in the trash. I am being lazy. I need some of your motivation. This is just terrific you are making Richard very happy.
December 7th, 2014  
Very nice selfie.
December 7th, 2014  
@joansmor Certainly having you and Richard around makes me push! I am interested in the multiple exposure. I like your coffee mug photo very much. Also, I need to figure out what works with my flash so I can make it an off camera flash. So much to learn. Just love it!

Even supermoms have tough days. Hope you get a cat nap here and there.

@kt8ird I want to try off camera too. But need to get done with accountants and then the directors meeting. Keep falling asleep in my chair today. Have you tried Christmas lights on a tree. A big problem I always seem to have.
