Freddy sees black and maroon rabbits running around in circles, figure 8’s, frantic but organized, fluffing in the wind as bunnies are wont to do, on Walnut, maybe 70 or 80 bunny rabbits. He feels the drowning sadness as he perceives this state of affairs and he prays and prods for the rabbits to climb the tall buildings so that they can grab and mangle the sun from the rooftops and avoid the malaise of drivers who feel they have a mission to keep, but as Freddy rubs his eyes, he realizes that these are merely bits of the discolorations of pavement gathering together in melting storms of gray colors, conspiring to make him believe that something beautiful lives in these streets when he has known for years that this is a sick sort of unfulfilled fantasy with little if any inspirational source.

That’s only two sentences. How do you do that?
“little if any” – I beg to differ.

Ah, and thank you for your comment!

Actually the black rabbits can be quite friendly but it is hard to get through their aloofness. But the maroon ones can be very dangerous if provoked.

I always approach the maroon ones very slowly with an open hand.

Dear Carl, could you please have a look at my post from yesterday and tell me what you think? even if it’s brief, just some quick thoughts, if you have the time. I am getting very anxious about this writing assignment and would very much appreciate your opinion. heike
