Memories of Artemis
Dear Artemis,
I leave you here in care of your angels. Here you will find plenty of catfood, you can drink all the water you need from long tall sunshine buckets...There are plenty and plenty of pillows and soft cushions. You can lie down and go into soft slumber. May the sun always shine upon your white pearly face...you will always be bathed in warm sunlight while you sleep off on your pillow.... I think they will reserve all the pillows and cushions in rainbow bridge for you.
And there is plenty of warmth and your angels will give you laptops and power cords -- on which you can put your chin and purr and purr and purr
And guess what? In this world there are no baths. Roll over on your back and plant your tummy in the air and dream -- dream about your brother and your Mom.

17/Apr/2010 - It is all so very empty, dear girl. Everywhere I turn I can only find your fur on the furniture on my clothes. What do I do with all this now? I remember the last word I said to you was "Bye". I meant to see you 4 days from then. I never realized it would our last greeting. Dear Artemis, Amadeus and I send you all our love.
***********************************************

25/Dec/2010 - Happy Birthday Dear Artemis. Amadeus is sitting next to me playing with his birthday gifts (catnip toys) and he sends you his headbumps and wishes too. Its been so long Art. And oh how I wish you were still here next to me.

Dear Artemis, on your birthday all I can gift you is all my merit and pray that all your sufferings be mine. For both you and Amadeus, I send all my merit and may you both find liberation in this lifetime....and wherever you are I pray that there is always warm sunshine and you have plenty of soft pillows to roll on.....Love you and bless you Artemis....May you be happy...may you be well....may you be protected....may you be blessed....

21/Mar/2011 - I saw a shooting star the other night and prayed that you come back. Amadeus is much better now but misses you....It's time for summer...I hope you find loads of sunshine where you can roll on your tummy and enjoy the warmth....i went to Namdroling and showed your photo to Rinpoche and they have all blessed you...

28/Aug/2011 - Artemis, I cried as I read the following lines but knew that this was meant for you....till we can together make the final crossing...
I never thought I could go on living when you died, but ~ I did.
I never thought I'd get through those first days, weeks and months, but ~ I did.
I never thought I would be able to endure the first anniversary of your death, but ~ I did.
I never thought tomorrow would be different, but ~ it was.
I never thought I would stop crying for you, but ~ I have.
I never thought I would care if the sun shone again, but ~ I do.
I never thought I'd smile again, but ~ I do.
I never thought I would laugh out loud again, but ~ I do.
I never thought I would look forward to tomorrow, but ~ I do.
I never thought I'd reconcile your death, but ~ I have.
...
Always missing you,
Always loving you,
And thinking of you daily,
with a smile on my face..
and tears in my heart. ~ Author Unknown

25th Dec 2011 - Happy Birthday Artemis. I am slowly beginning to realize who you truly are and that you have transcended all boundaries of space and time...(something I am not able to put words to). From my plane of existence Christmas still remains a day to honour and celebrate you. So please accept my wishes, my merits, my prayers....my everything....

Amadeus who is still with me says he is quite content and likes his lazy life and I have this feeling that he is connecting to you in his own way....Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday to both of you....
***********************************************

18th Apr 2012 - Dearest Artemis, to the one who came closer by going away...Rinpoche has blessed all 3 of you and those at Namdroling have prayed for you....He actually quite liked your photo with Amadeus...

Dear Artemis, to you who have transcended all boundaries of the physical and mental limitations...may Amadeus, Duchess and I be united with you in the space you are at in this very lifetime...

25th December, 2013 - Dearest Artemis, Happy Birthday. Wherever you are, here is a small birthday prayer for you.
May you always have happiness and the causes of happiness
May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering
May you find the supreme bliss that is devoid of suffering
May you live in equanimity and be free from attachment and aversion.

Dear Artemis, all my Teachers have blessed you and you are a very blessed One now. One has even kept a photo of you.

May you cross the oceans of samsara and nirvana in this very lifetime...

7th July 2014 / Guru Rinpoche's Birthday:
Here's a song for you Artemis:

O Queen of the Sylvain plains!
Temples and legends to your name;
Queen of arrows, maiden of hearts;
You my Goddess, you chose to come
Chose to guide; Chose to steer;
Chose to rescue a weary ward

I remember your purrs and your furs
They still adorn my heart and hearth
I remember your gentle guile;
Pure mischief in disguise
I remember the times you sat in watch,
When I lay numbed by pain and loss

And now you have gone back to Elysium;
Void within and void without.
And as you went you left this Gift
You gifted colors maroon and gold
And took me to the Precious One
And gave the key to the Sage of yore

To you, my daughter, my sister, my guide!
Your song Beloved I will play today

***********************************************
4th April 2016:

Dearest Artemis - 6 years now since that unfortunate day. Still not a day passes when you are not in my thoughts and prayers and in my heart. Wherever you are may you stay protected and guided and blessed. Someday together we will make the final crossing. Both Amadeus and I send you our love, prayers and head-bumps
