Thursday's Cat

“Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth. We are happy when we are growing.”
– William Butler Yeats

Oh I certainly do agree with that!

Pelle 3
4″ x 6″ Watercolor

My husband tells me that these paintings would look more like Pelle, if I had his ears closer together.  Funny how non artists can see things we sometimes can’t.  Here is the real Pelle.  (See?  Not even close)  LOL

About William Butler Yeats

Irish author William Butler Yeats, known for his mysticism and Celtic imagery, won a Nobel Prize for his plays but ultimately achieved more renown as a poet. He was born in Dublin in 1865. Co-founder of the Abbey Theater, he served as its resident playwright and worked with actress Maude Gonne, who inspired the romantic longing expressed in many poems. He married at age 52 and co-wrote A Vision with his wife, a book with occult roots that explores the mythology in his poetry. He died in 1939.
