oh, truly a bittersweet halloween…
in complete costume eliza got home from school
to find her bunny had died at some point during the day.
this sweet bunny who was the focus of many photo shoots.
we forgot how small he was when we first got him.
blaze was completely normal in behavior,
but we noticed he hadn’t been eating or drinking
as much in the last few days.
but he was so active and cuddly, we weren’t worried.
just yesterday he was insistent on climbing
on top of my keyboard while i was working.
over and over.
as usual, he would climb on top of sally and sally didn’t even care.
there was serious expression of grief
mingled with the sheer joy of free candy
and a yard full of friends.
the circle of life, no doubt.
“he was so sweet i can’t even think of how to talk about him.”
“i had so many plans of what i wanted to do with him, but now i can’t.”
“i just wish i could go dig up his grave and hold him. but it seems like i shouldn’t.”
wise at 6.
