This is a piece of art which I was 'looking for' for a while, I knew I had seen it somewhere in my travels, but had no idea the artist or the title of the piece to get a copy. The other night while at a nightclub in Boston, I stumbled across it posted there above the bathroom stall...

What really intrigues me about this piece, is how relevant it is to our new 'internet society'. Here we all are, sitting behind the computer... going after carrots... You're just a rabbit, like everybody else... and we're all going after the same thing.. carrots. Maybe your idea of carrots is different than others... but for the most part, here we are, all trying to get our carrots and we think we'll be happy once we get them.

Rabbits are fast little creatures, scurrying about... seems these days so are we... always off to the next meeting, practice, whatever...

Carrots, are what we like and want... theyre good for us, or so people say... they help to keep you healthy, or help with development of our eyes... or maybe for you carrots could mean the weight of that gold, or cash that you think you want so bad you'll sit behind that computer screen and work all day for it....

So, what is your carrot? and will it help you to see more clearly once you get it... and can us rabbits live just fine without them?

I was down in Miami last weekend, and what did I see? 'Surfing Bunnies' once again! After a long night on the town, I was looking for a nice Breakfast Burritto... I found it on south beach at Big Pink, afterwards we made our way to the beach...

Why don't the bunnies have wireless mice? That's what I'm wondering.

The paradigmatic shift is thought-provoking. When I think about it though, I spend much less time in front of my computer now than before, and a lot more time talking to real people in real life. But I also wonder, what makes that conversation any more real?
