Somebody's affectionate today.

Cat was just purrsniffling my toes, nosing them, and licking them. This is not entirely ordinary.

I am wary of the purrsniffle, because usually it means she's in vacuum cleaner mode. She was much more picky about what she picked up off the floor to eat when she was a hen!
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
