Rabbit rabbit…rabbit! In celebration of the third month of the year, this post is inspired by the ancient “Three Hares” motif. It symbolizes different things for different cultures, but in China (where the earliest known examples appear in cave temples dating back to the 6th century!), the hare represents peace, tranquility, and success—and I truly hope March brings you all those things.
Rabbit rabbit and happy February! Steve Maraboli once said, “The moon doesn’t go through phases. Our perspective of the moon goes through phases. No matter what the calendar says, the moon is always full.” This is such a great quote to remember as we inevitably go through many phases and feelings this month. Like the moon, we are full and complete even if some days we just don’t feel it. Hope you enjoy your February, and all the phases it brings!
Rabbit Rabbit! The first of the year. The mother of all Rabbit Rabbit days. A good day to appreciate all we accomplished in 2018, and then look forward to all the beautiful things ahead. Wishing you all the best in 2019!
Rabbit Rabbit and welcome to December!
I’ve been wanting to do a carousel design for a while now. Inspired by Joni Mitchell’s song, Circle Game.
And the seasons they go ’round and ’round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We’re captive on a carousel of time
We can’t return we can only look behind
From where we came
And go ’round and ’round and ’round
In the circle game.
I hope you will look back fondly on this year. And if not, there’s still time to make some nice memories. Now go enjoy what’s left of this 2018 ride!
Rabbit, rabbit! Another new month begins. And as the days continue to get darker and colder, it can be easy to hide away and take them for granted. But, there is still so much wonder around us, still so damn much to be thankful for. Like Marcel Proust once said (and I paraphrase), “the real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but seeing with new eyes.” Hope you find the beauty in the new month ahead!
Rabbit rabbit! The start of a new month and a new season. Autumn. Known to Chinese philosophers as a time of sadness and courage. A time to allow ourselves to weep for the loss of summer. To find the courage to face what’s ahead. To let go of things that aren’t going right. And to chase our dreams and visions. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Happy Autumn and October!
Rabbit, rabbit and welcome to September. August was a little rough for me. So I, for one, am looking forward to a new month and a fresh start. And if I’m bringing anything with me into September, it’s remembering that we have good days and bad days. And really f*ing bad days. And that’s just life. But we can still find beauty in the really f*ing bad days if we try hard enough.
