365 Things That Inspire Me

I also do posts for my clay group, beads-of-clay.org. Twice now, I have posted pictures that I took on walks with my dogs in a park near here, 3 Creeks. I post these as creative inspiration for my fellow artists and jewelry designers. These posts have been so well received that I decided to start a blog with daily inspiration in the form of pictures, quotes and poems. These pictures will be things from my immediate environment that I find inspirational or beautiful; textures, colors, contrasts, animals, unusual things, intriguing things. A daily dose of wonder....

"Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, and of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, THINK on these things."

"Earth's crammed with heaven, and every common bush is afire with God, but only he who sees takes off his shoes."
E.B. Browning

It's all for Joy!

Ocober 10, 2010 Lop Rabbit

This rabbit was at the Groveport Apple Butter Festival yesterday; there was a small petting zoo with goats and rabbits.

This is an English Lop Earred Rabbit and the was breed was developed in England in the Victorian Era; the first time rabbits were kept as pets instead of bred for their fur and meat.
I can't imagine what those ears must feel like, but they can reach 22" long.  It is thought that in Algiers, the ears helped keep the rabbits cool.
