Image Spotlight: Zuzu
By Sharon Brown on April 26, 2010

♪♬ Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens ♬♪....when I think of Zuzu, I always think of these words by Rodgers and Hammerstein. I know no one else who lives in a paradise of roses surrounded by kitteny whiskers, no one but Zuzu. Come with me and let's spend some time with this very special lady....

You'll never know how much fun I had writing this article. It didn't matter that I already knew most of your story, what mattered was by the time I finished...I'd already decided if I ever have another life to live, I want to be either a kitten or a rose in your garden.

Now I know about the gophers and the thorns, so maybe I should only come back as a kitten. Once there, I think I'd never leave.

Thank you, my friend. You are delightful.

Well, thank you, Sharon, for making me a star. I'm immensely flattered. If I were a Buddhist, I'd have to tell you that you'd have to be a very bad person in this life to come back as a kitten, which is categorized as a lower form of life, although I personally prefer most kittens to most humans.

Shar and Zu: Thank you both for this spotlight article on Zuzu, a delightful rose mentor and I hope friend. Some of the story I, too, knew from reading Zu's posts about the cat/kitten foster program she operates, but it's always good to get to know ourselves and others better and I'm happy that you chose Zu for your first biographical sketch subject. What an interesting life you have led, Zu!

And, of course, I'm happy to see you included a photo of my Jasper!

Thank you, Angie, but as much as I enjoy knowing Zuzu, she isn't my first biographical sketch for Spotlight.

There are others that Nap and I have enjoyed writing during the past month or so. You'll have to catch up, you know.

Thank you so much Shar for allowing me to visit with Zuzu and walk thru her beautiful garden with her. I felt very peaceful after reading the article. Zuzu, you are a special lady. Thank you for sharing a piece of your life with us. I would love to just walk along side you, thru your garden, and hear everything about your travels. Thank you so much mentoring us.

Thanks Sharon for spotlighting Zuzu! While I visit with her quite often, enjoying garden strolls, visiting the kitties and nursery hopping with her, I learned even more about her in this article. Closet full of lace blouses, who knew LOL!

Yep, I will, Shar. Just hadn't noticed them before and life is so busy right now!

Let me know if you need any, Sue. I have white lace skirts and dresses too. I used to wear a lot of white lace when I lived in the city. And thanks for contributing the extra photo. Must have been very early in spring or right after a major weeding. I can see the pathways.

Thanks, Debbie. I would like to have you walk with me too. Come to California.

Angie, it has been an interesting life, but I'm sure you know about that old Chinese curse: "May you live in interesting times." There were times when it was definitely no picnic. Thankfully, all of that has been behind me for years and years.
