And forget not 

that the Earth delights

to feel your bare feet

and the winds long 

to play with your hair

…….Kahlil Gibran

When I was a child I had two pet rabbits. Their hutch was kept in the garage during the winter. One snowy morning I looked out a window in the front of our house and saw my miniature dachshund Hannah running down the street along side one of my rabbits holding onto one of his ears with her mouth. She had rescued the rabbit from the perils of escape we shortly found the second rabbit on a neighbor’s back porch stoop. Catastrophe averted. There were no leash laws nor animal permits many years ago. Also house and car doors were not locked. I was permitted from a very early age to spend the day alone in the woods. I wish that I could give that experience of peace and joy to my grandchildren. Sadly children today must be protected from the possibility of dangerous adults.

The hare as one of the Chinese zodiac signs gives one born under the sign the powers of the moon. Hare can be a most relaxed animal when it is sleeping. I love the way they stretch way out with their legs behind them. I have shared space with a number of rabbits. They all have very different personalities just like dogs and cats.
