About Me/About SquareKat Blog


I have always kept SquaareKat close to my heart.  I remembered or was reminded of Square Kat probably eight or ten years ago while getting ready for a function.  It was a childhood memory that brought back a moment or many moments shared with my mom.  So here I am getting ready for a party; for this event I did not purchase panty hose that came in an egg or small box but rather I bought a higher costing brand that was in a flat packet. As I unraveled the hose from the white paperboard that it was wrapped in my attention became focused to the paperboard.  Immediately I was transported to small bedroom in Queens NY where my mom was getting dressed. This was at a time when women dressed meticulously to go to the supermarket; skirts were worn with panty hose and heels.  My mom always dressed this way. She worked at a factory as a seamstress and when she walked home from work she looked like she just left a banking job.  She took care of herself and her daughters we always had pretty dresses and my mom was always refined and a sense of sophistication that caught the eyes of many stay at home moms on our block.  Well now can you imagine how many of those white paperboards she had and every single time I would always ask her to draw me something, this is what she drew for me:



This is SquaareKat this is how my mom entertained me for a few moments while she dressed in the morning starting her daily ritual. I adored it, my mommy drew me picture! As I got older SquaareKat was forgotten and for one brief moment in my daily routine a memory was recalled and I was re-introduced to a childhood recollection that was shared with a daughter and her mother. I am dedicating SquaareKat to the woman that has made me who I am today.  I am not sure what kind of blog SquaareKat will become but that is the beauty of creating this space and watching it grow or materialize.   I looked up the word square and the first definition was four-sided…and that is what I am sticking to, a space where I can express a four – sided view on just about everything.  What is a 4-sided view?  Not sure but it will be interesting finding out.  My name is Marisa I am  40 something  I live in New York and I have always had a passion to write. I may not write well but that doesn't seem to stop me just like not be able to sing doesn't stop me from singing neither. I am creating this space now because I can and I want to. ( I have the time)  Recently my husband and I have become parents we adoptied a brother and sister age 8 and 9 and my life has changed dramatically.  I want to share SquaareKat with you and I want a space to say what a I feel.  Please join me and enjoy!  Marisa
