Time Portal Guardians: The Mystery Revealed

A couple of days ago, I posted an art journal entry titled Guardians of a Time Portal. Just what are my two cats doing when they're sleeping their time away amongst the roses on the driveway, I asked?

My friend,Judy Gosnell  was able to answer that question in a flash. That gal is a natural when it comes to time travel. What era other than ancient Egypt, when cats were worshipped properly, would a cat consider worthy of her guardianship?

Stop on by our driveway the next time you're in the mood to join Pharohs retinue. Just don't forget a little offering of mackerel to placate the guardian at the gate.

Clearly our furry companion Olivia, sees herself as a later day Bastet. It's certainly nice of her to spend so much time in the modern era when she could be chasing mice through Pharoh's graneries. I feel honored.

No, not honored enough to open up ANOTHER can of mackarel. You can wait until breakfast-time, Olivia.

I created the illustration above in Photoshop, using photos I took at the British Museum. In four trips to London we've never missed a visit to that delicious treasure trove.
