The volcano rabbit is an endangered species. It is one of the smallest and oldest of the rabbit species, measuring about twelve inches long and weighs about one pound. They have “short brown to black fur, short legs and rounded ears. This species of rabbit does not have any visible tail.”
Their habitat is “on the slopes of four volcanoes in central Mexico, south of Mexico City.” Populations are dwindling because of “habitat destruction, climate change, and hunting.” Mexican law made hunting the Volcano Rabbit illegal.

Sleeping Volcano Rabbit
I think these rabbits living on the slopes of volcanoes would make excellent characters for children’s stories.

The Best Hug
Here is another scene where a lion remembers his owners who rescued him and played with him when he was a cub.
Beautiful ending with hugs.
If this link doesn’t open here, it’s worth clicking and going to YouTube to see Christian the Lion’s full story and the two men who rescued him from a cage in a London store. (Hover over the link and press control to go to YouTube.

Com’on, it’s fun.
And to all a good night.

We had trouble importing followers to my new site: http://www.timetowritenow.com/
and changing this site to a new domain name: Julaina Kleist-Corwin.
Since I haven’t heard from many of you since the launch in August, I’d appreciate knowing if it is because you didn’t know the URL for the new site (because followers didn’t make it there), or ???
Since I changed this domain name, I intend to work both blogs. The new one will continue to be about writing.
This site I’d like to be more interactive with you being able to post here too. Plus posting more photos with themes, for instance photos of you writers with your pet, pictures of your favorite writing space, short short essays and stories you’ like to share, etc.
I’m planning to post essays by the members of my writing class and their short shorts of an object as a character, for instance “Freddy the Footstool”. Stay tuned but please let me know if you have been receiving posts from the new site.
Thanks so much,
Maya Angelo did very little of her writing at home. She said that the comfort of her house was too distracting. “Angelou elected to write in the anonymous tranquility of what she described as “tiny, mean” hotel rooms. She typically rented the rooms for months at a time, and arrived early in the morning armed with only her writing materials and a Bible, a bottle of sherry and a deck of cards (which she claimed helped busy her “little mind”). Angelou ensured that the rooms were as spare as possible to sharpen her focus, and she often wrote while reclining on her side on the hotel bed. In an interview with the “Paris Review,” she confessed that one of her elbows was “rough with callouses” from lying on it for long hours each day.” (information from History.com.)
Angelou said, “When I’m writing, I am trying to find out who I am, who we are, what we’re capable of, how we feel, how we lose and stand up, and go on from darkness into darkness.”
“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”
She was born on April 4th, 1928 and died on May 28, 2014.
