They're growing so fast, these little cotton balls...but I wonder what it feels like to BE a rabbit. I wonder if, in the scale of their brief lives, it feels like the passage from birth to adulthood is an eternity, if it seems like they'll never get all their silky fur. I wonder if they wonder how long before they'll finally get a place of their own, away from siblings who always crowd their personal space... I look at life so differently: The day Rosemary jubilated over tiny red, hairless creatures buried in a nest was only three weeks ago. So soon they're transformed. Perhaps they wait in impatience—but I'm astounded at the speed of change, amazed at the differences day-by-day.
To say it plainly, they just don't have a big enough perspective. They live in a rabbit-sized world and grow at a rabbit-pace.
They'll have to trust me if they're to believe that soon enough really is.
