"This one is for Damon Michael, broken-hearted visionary.
We have all had that moment when the world cracks open and you see the extraordinary. To most people, it looks like just an ordinary stone, tree or monument. But you know better. When you look at it from just the right angle, you can see the face of one of my friends… or something they left behind. Show me the secret sign of the ghost of a dearly departed, and include any hints I might need to see what you see."
Ms. Sherman here was artist; her epitaph said, among other things, "Look up and you'll see better."
I didn't interpret that as saying I would see better if I looked up (as opposed to down). My knee jerk reaction was to think that I would see something better then what I was looking at if I looked up.
Inspired by the secret Shadow had found earlyer, my intention was to document the message and then look up to see the thing that was better.
As I lined up the shot, I heard a, "Mew?" And instictively looked up.
My camera went off and you can see the result.
Very wise people have often said that cats serve as messengers for the dead.
This little fella was very friendly. He talked to us, played with us, and followed us all over the place.
He was a messenger for the dearly departed heralded by the Artist's Epitaph. And the message he delivered was, "Hi, nice to see you. Glad you're hear. Relax. It's okay. Have fun."
