who wouldn't want to slip away from the world and find adventure? even if - at the end - you have to pay for it? oh, a companion hare. what's better than that?

"To walk, like Thoreau, away from the community one knows too well and to sit still in the forest, where suddenly our companions are the stars, the creatures we've never stopped to notice before, other eccentric dropouts, even the pinch of bitter cold. In an age when more and more of us are assaulted, around the clock, by beeping cell phones, chiming laptops, twittering handheld devices, and calls from the boss - when even the division between home and office is dissolved - something in us almost cries out for the time and freedom and something zesty and close to the ground."
