The Rabbit and the Clover
There was a little rabbit who had perfectly curved ears and the fluffiest, whitest scut his colony had ever seen. The elder favoured him, because someone with so beautiful attire could only have a beautiful soul, and the young adored him and wanted to win his benevolence.
One day, a female came to him and said:
"I found the last clover growing before the winter, just there, and I want to give it to you, because you are both equally beautiful."
The little rabbit followed her to the place she had indicated, and indeed there was the last clover, and it smelled delicious.
"Thank you," he said and nuzzled the female, who ran away then.
Looking at the clover, the rabbit said to himself:
'This clover is really just as beautiful as I am, and I will not eat it right away. There is still enough other food and this one deserves admiration.'
He settled down next to the clover and started eating the grass that grew around it.
Before night fell, the female came back to the spot where the clover grew

Hello deviantART,

It's been quite some time since I posted here -- and my, how life has moved on, and on, and on. Three years and a few weeks since my last journal entry, and in that time I've left the PhD program with a Masters (decided I was tired of school, wanted to move on with my life, needed a change of pace, and the concentration was not inspiring me -- in short, I lacked the passion to complete the PhD in the topic I was studying, so I left), started dating and married the love of my life (Katie!), had my first child (who is now over a year old!), took on a full-time job in New York, moved to a nice neighborhood, upgraded cars, ... in short, literally everything about my life is transformed.

It also explains in no small way the lack of time I've had for the DeviantArt community, although there are many here that I still think of and remember fondly. I'm sure if you stumble on this journal and recall my name you'll be surprised by what I've said!

Regardless, of course no guarantee I'll be back in any capacity, but I'm up and sleepless and figured what better use of my time then to drop a line to my old friends and colleagues on DeviantArt. I trust you are all hale and well, and that the transformations in your lives have been equally full of happiness as mine.  Good night, and take care.

Deepest love,
Daniel (TheBishounen55)

Well, my gratitude could never be nearly so articulate as yours is, but I thank you in return for the watch. Keep up your awesome work. :D

Aw, thank you! I hope to have more time ... always hopeful ... to devote to art, but it's a challenge these days. I trust you are doing well and excelling at all things :).

dum dum dummmmm I miss you Dan! the programmer man!

Anyway, have you seen my new works?
TheBishounen55 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2010
Awww, I miss you too Miglet :). I glanced at them briefly a few days ago but haven't really sat down and contemplated their deeper meanings just yet. I did like what I saw though, especially the photo-mod of that child! Wicked! :)
