Helena Marles didn’t always love animals. They existed in a world of their own, separate from hers.
Then one day she brought home a kitten—Oleś—and with his endearing presence came a humble recognition of how much we all partake of the same kingdom of life and of the same tree of creation. That we’re all of the same world, here and now.
Her memoir, A Life Worth Living, tells their story.
She resides in Chicago with her husband and two cats.
