It’s always good to have a new year. In Chinese tradition, the years cycle through a wheel of animals that set the tone for the year, and depending on when you were born, you have a year dedicated to you every twelve or so years. This is your year if you were born in 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, and 2023. You have good fortune, patience, and prosperity in 2023, according to a Chinese horoscope.
However, it is up to you – as my son retorted when asked what animal he was
he said proudly – Human!
One would think I knew that – I am his mother after all..duhhhhh. So there are no two-legged rabbits in our family.
If you missed setting good intentions for 2023, hop to it how in the year of the bunny, and make huge leaps in whatever your chosen brand of awesome is!
If it’s writing a book, be sure to hop onto that bandwagon with me. The first step is to follow me as I write my first book for 2023, about the Winter Camino I walked in November/December.
Here’s the link to join my secret team.
We did see a couple of wild rabbits once on the Camino, as well, as a pair of deer. But there were more cows and pigs in evidence, as well as the occasional loose dogs that frightened us.
In the meanwhile here are some books about rabbits, well there’s the old Hare and the Tortoise one, but don’t go to sleep on that.
In addition to Peter Rabbit and the Velveteen Rabbit, my favourite book about rabbits is Watership Down by Richard Adams. It looks like a children’s book, though it’s really a more adult book with themes that resonate today. So read it before you give it to your child to read.
I continue to experiment with AI, sharing some covers that the app created for Watership Down.
And if you have read it, here’s a nice colouring book.

Ok, now back to my book, enough procrastinating Susan (yeah I talk to myself, but you can help by replying and telling me the same!!!
