Stepping Lightly on this Earth

I wrote this entry Monday last but have not had time to post, so forgive the delay. It is no less heartfelt:

She waltzed into our lives whimsically, a gorgeous furry little hobo surviving on the kindness of strangers. She adapted to her change of status with ease and equanimity, as she did with all the dramatic changes and events in her life. Embodying the female spirit after which she was named, Shakti provided loving companionship to lonely little Rogie throughout his life and only showed her inner steel when he felt threatened. She breathed her last on Saturday the 7th but not before hearing one last time the Hendrix riff celebrating her name. Yet the song that comes to mind when I think of her is Elton John's Tiny Dancer. Not the words so much as that light, carefree and confident piano solo. She trod lightly on this earth but now that wonderful Shakti energy is off dancing somewhere else.

and loving companionship to humphrey, who's timidity is matched only by his curiosity, and whose energy shakti clearly thought was unnecessary.

and to brad, who makes his way through life on instinct -- never planning. they had an indescribable connection and understanding. in some ways, i think she knew he needed a little more attention, too.

and to sal: affection when i deserved it and complete disinterest when i felt sorry for myself.

one positively magical thelemic creature.
