Cha Cha Sparks* from the Corner Pocket

Oct 9, 2023 | Blog Beat, Cha Cha Sparks*

*These words are electric. They light me up.

Copper Soup is cuddled up behind me. That’s one of my favorite things about my new comfy corner chair. The arms are thick enough for my fat cat to rest.—She’s not as fat as she was! We’re telling people she recently lost a pound. Then we are eating three scoops of hard food to celebrate. 

I love when she sits by me. The vibration of her purrs heal me. They say, “You are not alone.” When a human makes the same sound, it is because they are sick with sleep apnea. Context is everything. 

Originally from the east coast, Cha Cha lives in southern California with her fiance (he’s a plumber) and their bob-tailed cat, Copper Soup.

As a woman, Cha Cha spends her time writing, reading (though not as much as she wishes she did), watching Project Runway (way more than she wished she did—especially since the show ended in 2019), trying to exercise for at least 20 minutes a day (otherwise, she won’t leave the house because she works from home), learning how to manage her money, and talking to herself out loud.
