The compost pile has become home to a trio of kittens and their mother. I don't know where they came from, but they're very fun to watch romping in the garden while I read Haruki Murakami's book "Kafka on the Shore" (which, coincidentally, is full of talking cats). I thought I'd name the three Otsuka, Goma and Kawamura in honor of the book, but well . . . you'll just have to read it. I wouldn't want the same fate for these little guys. Enjoy!
