And there's Rosemary Well's Moss Pillows. It's part of the sweetest little set of books, Voyage to the Bunny Planet, where young bunnies experience terrible days, and then discover . . . "Far beyond the moon and stars, twenty light-years south of Mars, spins the gentle Bunny Planet, and the Bunny Queen is Janet." Queen Janet takes them to "the day that should have been." I read them all of the time, back when I was teaching little ones, even made myself a Bunny Planet dress.
So, I will keep going on this one, while thinking on lovely cool green peaceful soft comfy days.
And this morning, at 4:30 am, Blue leaving for the airport, back to college. Without my glasses on, I snapped this photo of him loading his luggage in the trunk. Looking at it in the light of day now, with him somewhere up in the sky. He's barely a ghost here, how strange. All of the beautiful greens, and him just a blur of memory.
