A Memory

The reason for this piece:
On Easter a few years ago. (Easter was on like April 8th I think that year) We were on our way to my one grandmas house and we invited my other grandma and I think we got a call from her saying she was on her way. And this was years ago, I was little (I think 10?) and probably playing video games with my cousins and stuff. I think we came down and asked when we were eating and they said we were waiting longer to see when my other grandma would show up. They called and she said she's on her way. But after a while she she didn't show up and we were worried. I think a few people went out to go look and couldn't find her :/ so she went missing. And a week or 2 later, I'm not sure, she was found :/ she passed away in a field. They think she turned into there thinking it was her home :/ and after that we looked through her house and found stuff. And then we also found cat food but she didn't own cats. She was feeding strays. And there was a mama cat and kittens left, we think there was more but they left. So my uncle and us would continue to feed them. And then one day we saw the mama cat passed away in front of the house and my uncle took the kittens. After a bit I asked my parents if we could have a kitten and they said yes and I got to choose first (well second kind of) and I just loved the little runt of the litter. And that's the kitten in the picture.

And the little blue orb thing that looks like a portal or puddle or something, that's like a ghost sort of. It's from a certain memory of visiting the house one day. So my brother was taking pictures and one with me in it there was this like... Orb floating by me. And I know it was probably the flash light reflecting off of something and onto the lens of the camera, but someone convinced me maybe it was my grandmas ghost watching over us or maybe a last goodbye. So I stuck with that even tho I'm pretty sure it's just the flashlight.

So the one in the picture is me and the cat is my baby in my grandmas garage and the orb thing is like a ghost of my grandma.
Kinda happy it's for this month, April, because all that pretty much happened this month, that year, so it was sort of a way to make a piece for that and to remember.

I wanted to make it darker around because of what happened and then lighter pointing towards the cat because I'm glad we were able to find her/them before anything happened to them since the mom cat passed away and also that I was able to have her.
