Rainbow Bridge Page

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colours...

"...One chilly morning in March, I cannot tell you exactly how many springs later, Hazel was dozing and waking in his burrow. He had spent a good deal of time there lately, for he felt the cold and could not seem to smell or run so well as in days gone by. He had been dreaming in a confused way - something about rain and elder bloom - when he woke to realize that there was a rabbit lying quietly beside him - no doubt some young buck who had come to ask his advice. The sentry in the run outside should not really have let him in without asking first. Never mind, thought Hazel. He raised his head and said,
"Do you want to talk to me?"
"Yes, that's what I've come for", replied the other. "You know me, don't you?"
"Yes, of course," said Hazel, hoping he would be able to remember his name in a moment. Then he saw that in the darkness of the burrow the stranger's ears were shining with a faint silver light.
"Yes, my lord," he said. "Yes, I know you".
"You've been feeling tired," said the stranger, "but I can do something about that. I've come to ask whether you'd care to join my Owsla. We shall be glad to have you and you'll enjoy it. If you're ready, we might go along now".
-Richard Adams, Watership Down

HRH Fuzzbucket, our friend Lara C.'s beloved darling, has gone (Nov.23rd 2001).
"If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.
If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again."

Go in peace, Fuzzwah.
