    I am so, so tired...

    ...

    The Fastest Bunny in the Forest?

    Nibbling some lettuce in a lettuce patch he was. Darned good lettuce, too. He heard a noise...

    He turned. There three coyotes stood. The coyotes looked at the rabbit. The rabbit looked at the coyotes.

    The coyote in the middle remained motionless. The outside coyotes began to circle left and right around the rabbit.

    The rabbit immediately discerned he had a real and immediate problem hereā€¦

    The rabbit turned to run. But there three more coyotes stood.

    The rabbit was surrounded.

    The rabbit bolted. The coyotes surged.

    It ended as expected.

    The fastest bunny in the forest he was not.

    You?

      A man spent a great deal of time running from one place and one person to another to warn them that on a certain day and at a certain time the world would come to an end.

      For him it did.

    Okay - a little existential meandering from here:

    The dove - peaceful and without intent to harm.

    Attacked by a predator.

    Kill the spirit, if not the breath and heart.

    Broken wings cripple flight, and fleeing can be difficult.

    Time brings new places for doves to rest, new arenas for healing and new flight.

    Predators are eventually spotted by all, and their swords are turned against them.

    Ultimately, doves may fly anew.

        Ambiguous critter, just the woman part.

        Um, I'm not sure of the reference there!  But the same page had one of my favorites:

        Procol Harem doesn't capture what I'm thinking - I just like the song.  Not sure there's a good song reference that comes to mind. It's about slaying dragons. Or defending the innocent.

          There was a time. And then we chat.  And then there was more.

    This thread should have been a diary.

    Looking outside I am. No problem.
