I live in the Connecticut River valley in Western Massachusetts. I am very fond of rabbits, as you can tell by my "name", but I do not have any real bunnies. However, I do have an assortment of rabbit things from around the world, including figurines, teapots, quilts and even rabbit wallpaper! I enjoy fantasy and science fiction and I am a "Trekkie" from 'way back! I have always enjoyed reading traditional poetry. I hope you enjoy my attempts at creating something special.
