Matilda changed a great many things in my empty life. I started to wonder if a meal could be too good after such a long time being hungry....?

She filled a vacuum that was up until her kept quelled with the useless, busy ennui that consumes most our days.
Pleasing people who didn't care a whit about pleasing us. Satisfying faceless clients who lived miles away.

She made life real again.

Matilda, her cat taught me a great deal, too.
