The Heart of Intention

Every time I get up from my desk in my home office, our foster cat Faro (who is very well fed by the way) jumps from his box a few feet away and races after me, hoping beyond hope that I’m going into the kitchen.

I’m ok at it, but then one day I freaked myself out. While I was waiting for something to load on my computer, I absentmindedly started the memory game, turned the first two tiles over, and they matched. I started a new game and matched the first two tiles again. I did it four times in a row. All while my brain h
