Rabbit Centered Universe

There is no denying that I live in a rabbit centered universe and that despite rather feeble efforts on my part this is, for all intents and purposes, a rabbit blog. I had actually started it years ago as a Chinese Medicine blog because one of my trade papers said blogging was a great way to keep in contact with patients between visits and to get new patients. It was not so in my case. This past Sunday I attended the Weston A. Price Conference  and could write short and concise pieces about Heart Rate Variance, Energetic Coherence,  Iodine and Health, Healing the Bio- field and Subtle Energies in the Soil, but I choose to write about a rabbit. For a while now I have been tired of my silly avatar that shows me peering out from behind my beloved camera. Naturally I thought about replacing it with a rabbit, but it didn't seem fair to choose one over the other and it seemed like the icon space would be crowded if I used both. Good heavens such knotty problems. Yesterday morning I saw Tyler in front of the blue stretching mat in the living room, the sun coming in from the window behind turning the mat silver. "That's nice." I thought and continued on through the room. Later I returned and he was still there. Possibly enamored with fantasies of being the Rabbit in the Moon, sparked by the shining mat or simply waiting to have his picture taken, I wasn't sure.  I could readily indulge him with the latter. After a few pictures he figured his work was done and he moved on to other important rabbit tasks. Dutifully I changed my avatar, curiously this went almost too smoothly, from getting the photos into iPhoto to finishing the switch it was under five minutes...............

"I'm waiting, you cannot resist me."

"Took you long enough, I'm off to see if Sydney has something good to chew. You get on that computer and set your avatar right."

"What a good looking fellow I am."

Congratulations to the new avatar...a very beautiful and appropriate for the blog. Tyler is such a handsome bunny, and he knows how to put himself under the best spotlight :) Funny how the bunnies assume a pose and keep it for a long time...Hugo does it with his paw(s) on the pellets bowl and sometimes when he is out and about. It is a bunny conspiracy!

PJ said...

Ahem (universal preface to stupid questions), have you ever done bun acupuncture?
You can stop laughing anytime.

PJ said...

That Tyler is one handsome fellow.

PJ I did some on my big Bandit, I prefer larger bodies and less hair. I took her to a professional and she got very good results in the back pain department. I think it would be called bunapuncture.......

M.Kate said...

Yep! He is a good looking fellow :D and I am still waiting for the day I find one like him...he looks like my Maskara minus all those bushy fur hehe..and hey, I like the old picture of you peering out of the camera, at least it gave me a glimpse of you, I dont even know how most of my fav bloggers look like. Aw..blog whatever you like..but rabbits, chinese medicine, climate change..as long as you are happy. big hugs for the weekend :D

That is definitely a very good picture of Tyler. I noticed your new profile picture in one of your comments on another blog earlier and found it very striking :) Not that the old profile picture is any lesser in comparison! Like M.Kate says, its nice to have a face to go with the name :)

I love the new avatar. Great bunny pose! Cadbury only holds good poses until I get the camera. Oh well.

Crafty Green Poet said...

I love the new avatar too. Tyler is adorable. Both your buns remind me of our Anya, she used to love posing too.

Lovely avatar--and he is indeed a good looking fellow. My blog is mostly bunnies too, with the occasional needlework since that's how it started out. I wonder if non-rabbit folks think we're odd... (well, I for one, am odd). It's not buncupuncture?

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

A good looking fellow indeed!

"Rabbit Centered Universe". A wonderful title for your autobiography. Or an indie band.

Rabbits' Guy said...

Boy there is enough stuff in those comments to get a guy committed if it had a been all from one commenter. Talk about nuts!

PS. If you darken the tone on the avatar then at Easter I say "Dibs on the ears!" ....

PJ said...

I wanted to bun-pun with bunupuncture...but hesitated and then was lost...buncupuncture, I hadn't thought of that. I like it.

ilex said...

Bunart photography.

Mary-Laure said...

That bunny plays the camera, what a ham...

Elizabeth said...

He is, indeed, a very handsome fellow. And he knows it.
I have just been reading how you helped Rima with her problems.
Wonderful to hear how well the traditional remedies worked.
See how the blogosphere helps us.

Elizabeth said...

PS.
I put my bunnies on plates post up today and linked to you and M.Kate.
Have a super week.

PJ said...

Every time I come by Tyler is still sitting in the same spot...

I have finally made it to your blog!
I endorse the bunny-centered universe! I have a cat-centered universe, but am equally in favor of the bunny as the center!
Great pictures and stories!
Thanks, again, for stopping by my odd blog - I'm curious how you found me, if you don't mind mentioning....
