enjoy easter fiercely!

thanks internet archive (PD)
"This is a fierce bad Rabbit; look at his savage whiskers, and his claws and his turned-up tail."

I always had a soft spot for Beatrix Potter's thug bunny.  If you recall that you did too, you may refresh your friendship with him here at Internet Archive.  I think that Beatrix Potter knew she had a streak of Fierce Bad Rabbit herself, thinly veneered.  It's right there in her style - creatures recorded down to the last realistic hair, dressed up for civilized life but ready to shuck it all off at any moment.

Happy Easter to you all, dear Museum friends.  
Remember to share your carrots!
And be careful where you shuck off your veneer.

It wasn't until I became a teacher that I read Beatrix Potter's stories. I don't know why I never came across them as a child. I love them. I'll try to be as fierce as possible over the next few days. Thanks. You, also, enjoy this season of hope.
