An American Chimera

2011 – Year Of The Rabbit

US Postage Stamp - 2011 Year Of The Rabbit

 The year 2010 is over, it was inevitable. I have always been a fan of New Years, it’s not so much the partying that excites me. Those days are long gone. I do however like the idea of having a clean slate. Another chance to make it count. 2011 – I welcome you and hope for the best. This year I thought perhaps I would acknowledge the Chinese New Year. We are now living in the Year Of The Rabbit. Jackalope Blues does have a certain fondness for rabbits as the mythical Jackalope is part rabbit. Although I am not a big believer in the idea of predeterminism, here are the characteristics of those born during the year of the rabbit: Gracious, good friend, kind, sensitive, soft-spoken, amiable, elegant, reserved, cautious, artistic, thorough, tender, self-assured, shy, astute, compassionate, lucky, flexible. Can be moody, detached, superficial, self-indulgent, opportunistic, stubborn. According to this belief system these traits can also be applied the chain of events that will make up the year ahead of us. As always I’ll take the good with the bad but given the choice, the good looks pretty good. Let’s see what happens.
