Box of Dreams:
Little Brown Rabbits in the Meadow

Dreamed 2009/3/20 by Jenny Badger Sultan


THE DREAM

We visit a friend. Her home is ramshackle, with trees growing right through the walls, in and out. But she invites us to see the glorious view out the window...

WHY RABBITS?

  1. I dreamed this on the Spring Equinox, a day when the Obamas announced they were putting in a vegetable garden at the White House. A celebration of spring, life, growth.
  2. Also, I'd been out walking in Chain of Lakes (in Golden Gate Park) and seen dozens of rabbits
  3. And I also saw Asian art depicting rabbits

--Jenny Badger Sultan

EDITOR'S NOTES

Jenny takes it for granted above that most readers will understand the traditional association of the equinox, Easter, fertility, and rabbits.

Also, remember that a lot of us in America, Christian or not, were thinking of new life and growth that spring--after the endless political winter of George W. Bush.

I also see a visual tip o' the hat here to some of the ukiyo-e artists, particularly Hiroshige; these sunlit rabbits have that rounded calm of Hiroshige's moonlit foxes.
