If you can’t sleep tonight just give this a listen. LeVar’s voice is one of many reminders of my childhood. <3
According to an old Polish legend, many springs ago a mother cat was crying at the bank of the river in which her kittens were drowning. The willow at the river’s edge longed to help her, so they swept their long graceful branches into the waters to rescue the tiny kittens who had fallen into the river while chasing butterflies. The kittens gripped on tightly to their branches and were safely brought to shore. Each springtime since, goes the legend, the willow branches sprout tiny fur-like buds at their tips where the tiny kittens once clung.
