In the shadows


"People's dreams are made out of what they do all day. The same way a dog that runs after rabbits will dream of rabbits. It's what you do that makes your soul, not the other way around."

~Barbara Kingsolver

I agree with the conclusion - not sure about the reasoning, though!

I just love Barbara Kingsolver...her writing is so accessible. I feel as if I'm reading about a friend whenever I read her fiction. I felt a bit worried about the quote though...because I started thinking that I don't want my dreams to be created out of anxiety...I worry too much...now I'm worrying about the worry creating dreams. sigh...there is a busy day ahead and I just have to jump in and enjoy it. I'm going to a wedding!

Is that a rabbit or a hare? Interesting shot on what looks like a hot day.

The deer have sent the rabbits ahead to scout out the new deck and ramada!

in the shadows... and barely visible... wonder if that little rabbit was "hiding" there!

Kingsolver is, without a doubt, my favorite contemporary author.

Hey Harriet said...

Cute bunny in the shadows! That's a very interesting quote. So true!

Lovely play of shadows round that bunny. He looks like he's taking a breather in some cool!

Rabbit in shadows,
ears alert, ready to bolt
