In this Retrospection, we will look at some small and disparate topics: cats, dogs, Covid-19 and the mysterious Knights Templar.
We start with cats, and I must admit that cats have a special place in my heart and I know there are many other cat lovers at read.cash.
I grew up with a cat as a sister, because that was in truth the nature of our relationship. We played and fought together and shared everything to the extent that my mother said that the cat was half human and I was half cat. Of course that was partly a joke, but, as with all good jokes, there was a kernel of truth in it. I learned things from her, I would have never learned from humans.
This cat was given to me when I was 4 years old and she was a Persian kitten of 3 weeks. She died when I was 20, so she was a part of my childhood and my teens. It was not always easy, she wanted to be with me everywhere, which was not always possible - and she was temperamental and so furiously jealous that she scared away my earliest girlfriends.
I have not more than four articles here about cats:
As for my articles about Covid-19, they are few (three) and they rather indirectly deal with this pandemic. I have deliberately avoided the purely medical side of this virus. The topic is so widely chewed in media, again and again, so it is hard not to become weary of it – and read.cash is so full of personal stories about how to deal with the related isolation and so on, that we, as readers, suffer from over-saturation.
Our last topic this time is The Order The Knights Templar. They were mysterious and secretive and wielded huge power during they heydays; they were the first warrior-monks, and the first order of knighthood, as it came to be understood in Christian Europe – all other orders of knighthood were modelled after them. They were also an essential part in the development of modern banking. But this was not enough. Peculiarities in their history, and their dramatic dissolution, also gave birth to many legends and myths about them; the mysteries of The Knights Templar is still very much alive in literature and film.
Strictly, the last one does not belong to the topic, it is about another order of knighthood, but I included it here because it is likely to interest the same readers as those being interested in the Templars.
My series “Retrospection” is primarily created for new readers of mine, as a manual into my production at this platform so far - but it can be read by anyone who wants to explore my articles topic by topic, rather than doing so in chronological order. In addition to that, my retrospections contain new comments and from time to time short personal stories connected to the relevant topic or topics.
