Lying in bed in the dark feeling alone as I often do, I got up and went out into the hallway where I knew my cat would be waiting for me near the door.  He waits there all night long.  He ran to me and I laid down on the carpet next to him.  He curled up as close to my chest as he could get, purring, nibbling my ear, rubbing his wet little nose against my earlobe and my face.  He pressed his forehead into my neck and rested it there.  And I knew that there, in the dark on the floor, no matter what has happened in our lives or what will happen next, he and I existed together, rested together in a moment of pure love and joy, untainted, undistracted.
