That silly rabbit thought he couldn't burn. Well well well... Unbelievably cute doesn't mean unbelievably smart, does it? :-)
In any case, this is a fantastic envelope from the rodent lover (that sounds wrong) Miss James.
Rabbit looking at the moon.... Here in Japan the rabbit is highly symbolic, and strongly associated with the moon. I found an interesting article on the paradoxical and contradictory rabbit symbolism here.
I quote: "In a Buddhist legend from India, Lord Buddha was a hare in an early incarnation, traveling in the company of an ape and a fox. The god Indra, disguised as a hungry beggar, decided to test their hospitality. Each animal went in search of food, and only the hare returned empty handed. Determined to be hospitable, the hare built a fire and jumped into it himself, feeding Indra with his own flesh. The god rewarded this sacrifice by transforming him into the Hare in the Moon
But that's only one of the many sides of the moon.
The Miss also sent me her Boodle Gots a Trabajo commemorative stamp. Now I have to confess I don't know what Boodle Gots a Trabajo is, but I love the design, all soft and cute and cosy, thanks Miss! (and don't worry, he's getting along great with the tanukis)
And this is Bunny number two, I nearly missed it, it was hidden behind the other one. A very cosmopolitan bunny, this! And a very smelly one too.... Thanks miss, or rather mister Boodle!
