A Life Full of Joy, Hope, and Duty: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Greetings! I don't know about y’all out there but for me this week was full! Tereza here, with news of duties, food changes, theater, sky-watching, and birthdays, as well as the usual connection, laughter, and warm season busy-ness. My first (of two) civic duties this week was voting in the state primaries on Tuesday. It’s always fun to fill a car with Rabbits and go see the nice ladies in Rutledge who run the voting station. Rumor has it a bunch of Rabbits went in by bike together earlier in the morning, which was probably fun too. I won’t stray…read more >
A Greater Us: A Dancing Rabbit Update

A Greater Us: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Hello, friends!​ ​Tereza here, finally back home after a ​short stay in Chicago, IL, and ​two weeks each in ​San Antonio and Austin, TX​. I began writing this on a lovely Sunday morning​,​ ​​the day after ​Sandhill​'​s annual May Day celebration, and the village ​was quiet​, save the birds, both ​wild and domestic​, singing and chirping and clucking and crowing their way into the day... There was a deceptively calm feeling in the air, and ​it was easy to ​sense the underlying busyness of ​a Dancing Rabbit spring just under the ​surface. Our second crop of this season's visitors arrived…read more >
Return of the Cold: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Return of the Cold: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Greetings from a much chillier Dancing Rabbit! If you’ve been reading the last few weeks you’ve likely noticed regular mentions of continuing unseasonable warmth. Yeah, not this week. Tereza here, with a cold-impacted take on happenings in the village. Note that there’s a double meaning in that last sentence: I’ve been down with a nasty cold most of the week. So as sometimes happens, most of my reporting will be word-of-mouth, as I wasn’t around and about to find out what’s up, and certainly didn’t go to much myself. Even if I wasn’t able to participate this week, I’m really…read more >

New Folks and Movie Stars: A Dancing Rabbit Update

This week held many highlights, for me anyway, so it was hard to decide what to leave out! Even the weather was exciting, with a cold snap, a few gloomy dark days, other days of unseasonable warmth and bright sun, not to mention some intense storms and a tornado watch (no actual tornado, thank goodness). And even though the time of year suggests that things should be slowing down, there's no sign of that in my reality, at least not yet. Here’s the news of the week, according to Tereza. Quite a few of the week’s highlights for me relate…read more >

Happenings & Eclipse adventures (Pt. 1): A Dancing Rabbit Update

Howdy folks, Tereza here, wanting to quickly note our switched-up email schedule: this update is coming to you today, rather than earlier in the week as usual. A number of the folks who work on bringing the weekly update to you (including yours truly) were traveling to see the eclipse, so this is coming to your inbox on a different day. Have no fear, we’ll be back to our usual schedule of mailings next week. Of course you’re wondering about the weather (ha!), so I’ll get that out of the way first: it continued very dry, then a few light-but-refreshing…read more >

Warm Days, New Folks, and Workshops: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Hello, and welcome to the latest installment in "This week at Dancing Rabbit"! Tereza here, feeling quite warm as I write, in my still-cool house with all the shades drawn... It is beautifully sunny outdoors, and as soon as I finish the first draft of this, I'm heading out for some pond time. (Later: Aaaahhh, very refreshing!) I've been enjoying the weather of late, especially the warm temperatures, and all the colors of green everywhere, not to mention strawberries and mulberries galore, ‘though I do feel sympathy for those who are spending much time and energy watering gardens. I hope…read more >
The Return of Spring…and Things: A Dancing Rabbit Update

The Return of Spring…and Things: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Yes, indeedy, spring is here, a time of growth, rebirth, and lots of activity. Recently returned from a month in Texas with Nathan visiting family and friends, I made my first batch of asparagus and shiitake mushrooms last week, sauteed up with plenty of Ironweed garlic, and that right there was the taste of spring in NEMO to me. Mmmmmm... Tereza here, writing to you at the end of a busy spring week, and the beginning of what looks to be a busy season altogether, here at Dancing Rabbit. The first week of the first visitor session of 2017 is…read more >
Pick a Season, Any Season: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Pick a Season, Any Season: A Dancing Rabbit Update

It's certainly been an interesting week here in Rabbitland in terms of the weather. Seems like we had every season this week. There was snow, though sadly (for some) not enough for sledding, and it melted fairly quickly leaving my least favorite kind of weather: muddy. Those soggier days felt like fall to me. Then there was sun (very welcome after the weeks of grey we've had) and almost-summer-like warmth, and then even more sun, with brisk winds that felt like spring. It is February though, right? I didn't lose track of the days and it's actually April?] Oy. Tereza…read more >
