February by Jasper Bunny

Jasper in BasketIt’s February. I’m having a hard time getting my little bunny head around how humans orient themselves. We celebrated the New Year on the first. Then I find out that the last day of January was the beginning of the Lunar New Year. 2014 is the Year of the Horse. We have to wait until 2023 until the next Year of the Rabbit! I have to suffer through all those other animals before we come to MY year.

Here’s the other thing I don’t get about February. The origins of the name come from the Latin word februum which means purification. I guess there was some purification ritual those ancients did. I can see why February has been conscripted as the month of love. Who wants to be purified? It sounds like pureed. My critical care food is pureed. Actually its dried and get constituted into a pureed-like gruel. It’s still disgusting.

I think my human Auntie is going to spend the whole month of February blogging about love. I tried to tell her there isn’t enough stuff about love to write about, but she seems adamant. She likes to have themes and series and all this structured stuff. Nobody and certainly no bunny – especially this one – cares, but she told me it helps her organize her thinking. Saint Uncle Sam thinks she thinks too much.

So if she’s determined to dedicate the month of February to love, here’s what I thinks she should focus on:

  • What does it really mean to love one another?
  • Why am I supposed to love my enemy? I don’t like them, so why would I love them?
  • What do you do if you love somebunny and they don’t love you back?
  • What is self-love anyway?
  • Is it true that all you need is love?

Well, she hasn’t asked me my opinion so I guess we’ll just have to see what she writes about. The 50th anniversary of the Beatles coming to the U.S. is this month. What better way to kick off a month of love than their classic, All You Need Is Love?!? If you watch this YouTube video of their recording session, you’ll see they used an accordion!
