Although I wasn’t born in a Rabbit year, I’ve always felt a connection to rabbits. Besides being adorable (and having vicious bites, which I learned the hard way!), rabbits symbolize intellect and cautiousness. The Year of the Rabbit is supposed to be one of peace and prosperity– something I think we all need.
Chinese New Year also takes place during the new moon, which is a time of change and fresh starts. I’m fully embracing this aspect, as I’m in the midst of moving (finally!) My posts (and comments) might be on the light side for the next while (I’m also still working on the new book), but I will be around. In the meantime, I wish everyone all the best for the lunar new year!

Considering how much of it exists in the world, it’s surprising (or maybe not) that blood banks are perpetually short of their key product. Blood and blood components are needed to help people with various medical conditions (including those with blood cancers), for surgery, and for emergency situations, like during childbirth or after a car accident. When there isn’t enough blood to go around, the consequences are devastating. So today’s post is to ask you to please consider donating blood, if you can. You’ll be rewarded with the warm sense of having done some good in the world (and a cookie).
By the way, Giving Tuesday is coming up– donating blood is a great way to do good. Your local vampires would approve 🧛
