“Sometimes being a bitch is all a woman has to hang on to.”
— Vera Donovan in Stephen King’s Dolores Claiborne
In a house full of boys, Kako agrees. Wholeheartedly.

- This is a photo of Kako lying on the desk next to my laptop. Many of The Kids do the same in various positions and locations, but always close to me—if not on me.
- On one side you can see my laptop screen where I do much of my writing and online work; on the other side are books. From bottom to top: all of my high school yearbooks for something I’m working on called “Yearbook Remembrances” or something equally mundane, a phone book I used that day for what I can’t remember, and one of my old journals (this one, like the rest, tattered and worn, pages yellowed with time, but holy writs to me nonetheless, items to be respected and admired, protected and secured).
- This photo was taken October 29, 2007.
- Notice the two white whiskers, one on each side? Now she has more.
