Got rabbit?

A page from my sketchbook ... quick sketches of sweet Teetang.

The house is very quiet tonight, except for some coqui frogs and crickets outside. It's a bit cool out but not cold enough for a jacket. Kanoe comes up for a pet from time to time. It's a perfect night to sit with my thoughts and read a bit.

I'm reading The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery ... again. :) I love this book. It gets me thinking each time I read it ...

"As the little prince dropped off to sleep, I took him in my arms and set out walking once more. I felt deeply moved, and stirred. It seemed to me that I was carrying a very fragile treasure. It seemed to me, even, that there was nothing more fragile on all the Earth. In the moonlight I looked at his pale forehead, his closed eyes, his locks of hair that trembled in the wind, and I said to myself: 'What I see here is nothing but a shell. What is most important is invisible ...'"
