I love hares. Here’s some pictures of them! (Click the picture to go to the artist’s website.)
Wendy Andrew has a book all about a hare that learns about the turn of the year called Luna Moon Hare. I cannot wait to buy it when I have some money; it looks utterly beautiful.
Art is super. Hares are marvellous! They bounce, leap and run. They look really photogenic in paintings like the ones above, and in real photos (such as those on my tumblr), and are frequently paired with full moons. I read a wonderful book about hares in mythology and spirituality which was called The Leaping Hare (1972) by George Ewart Evans and David Thompson (Amazon). My notes on it are somewhere – I’ll look it up and write more about hares next week.
