As a parent of school-aged children who attend school, I find it fun and fascinating getting to know their classmates. Among my eldest son’s classmates is Anya Harshan. Anya fascinates me. She always has something remarkable to tell me when I see her. Her stories these days revolve around her prized companion, snowflake, a kitten that has stolen her heart. Anya’s heart is bursting and although snowflake occupies most of the real estate, she has plenty of room for everyone; young and old, alive and deceased.
