I collected these hand-carved wooden bunnies when I lived in Nebraska. As Easter approaches, I set them out and enjoy their company. I first bought the carvings simply because they were cute and I love rabbits. But as my collection grew and years passed, the bunnies came to be a reminder of the passing years. When JT was small, the bunnies were placed on a higher shelf. Toddler JT liked to gently hold each bunny in his hands; sometimes I’d let him tuck one of the more durable rabbits in his pocket. Their presence in this window sill (next to some framed family pictures) is both a reminder of Spring and a tour of some very happy memories.
Each day with Donald Trump in power is a day we are losing what’s left of our better selves. I am embarrassed and ashamed of my nation and look for hope in resistance. I like to read (I just finished Ta-Nehesi Coates’ Between The World and Me), garden, cook, and talk.
I love… lobster bisque, eyebrow-shaping gel, NPR, tulips, Spring lists, flower prints, bunnies, paper crafts, Easter eggs, homemade waffles, family traditions, sunlight, flower seed packets, shoots of green in chilly Spring soil, pink cardigans, chirping birds, hair ties, Spring Break plans, sunlight, sleeping in, and time for a sweaty workout.
