Part of Your World

Mingus likes to hang out on our balcony and stare in the window. He’s seldom left our apartment, so being outside is miraculous to him. He inspired my slice today as I questioned what must be going through his mind on the outside looking in… Look at this stuff. Isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you think…… Continue reading Part of Your World
