Hi, it's KOIT's proud #CrazyCatLady & avid dog lover. When I'm not hanging with my five furry family members, I'm volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or touring a dog-friendly vineyard. >^..^<
The horses made an elegant and gorgeous entrance at China Basin Park, next to AT&T Park, as they got off the plane to stay in San Francisco for the theatrical equestrian show that you have to see to believe, Odysseo.
Think Cirque du Soleil meets horses. I saw Cavalia when it came to the Bay Area several years ago and was astounded by the grace and beauty.
I am prepared to be wowed again. Details for Odysseo by Cavalia here.

This was the first course of my experimental Indian meal by Chef Rahul Dharod called "Beyond Naan & Curry", through a service called Eatwith, offering multi-course meals cooked in a chef's home. (And everyone's favorite!)
I thought it would be perfect for a single female (me), looking for a more comfortable environment than dining alone in a restaurant. This dinner ended up being held in the Eatwith test kitchen rather than someone's home, and was larger than the normal experience.
I was told by other diners at my table that the dinners served in the chef's homes were more communal and comfortable for singles. Nonetheless, the food was wonderful and definitely beyond usual Indian fare.
Dessert is Rabdi Jalebi, like crispy funnel cake pieces (NOT worms), in steamed milk. (right) A blurry me, enjoying the Makhani.
Next time, I'll book this with a friend, since dining alone at tables full of couples or groups was not so fun. But the important part was the food, and it was wonderful. Definite compliments to the chef!
The takeaway: Embrace cats for who they are. (They are not dogs, and won't act like them.) Invest in their world from a heart-centered place. We project our own "stuff" onto them, that they don't deserve. Step away from the emotions, learn about cats, and it will open up your world to understand and "get" them, so you won't be frustrated by them. (And them by you!)
My cat crew: Me, Chris, Connie w/ MHS & Ashley w/ KOIT. On stage w/ Jackson.
Added note: Jackson is "bipetual" just like I am. Bi-pet-ual: having both cats & dogs and loving them equally; flying the flag of "animal awesomeness".
