Let the Celebrations Begin!

Born in the Year of the Rabbit? What the Chinese say about you, reported at TheEpochTimes

You're in good company ;-)  I'm presently burrowed up inside due to the snow storm that passed through southern Ontario this week and is heading eastward.  I am surprised that Shubenacadie Sam actually got up today!

Did you know... 2011 has also been declared International Year of Forests

I find this a beautiful coincidence. In my novel, eleven-year-old Sera Fletcher tries to make sense of her lonely world and sees the 1975 Year of the Rabbit as a year of hope with the birth of her illegitimate nephew. She is also a lover of nature, trees and an unintentional avenger, protector of a forest in her own community.
