Bunny was just sitting in the middle of Lafayette Blvd looking around, so I stopped in the bike lane to watch him. It was a quiet, warm Phoenix Spring morning, with very light traffic, so I wanted to see what he would do. He did nothing but look around for a solid minute or so. Taking in the morning air I guess. Then that strong cyclist came flying around the roundabout and the bunny decided to run--straight in the direction of the cyclist. I was laughing so I kind of missed that sequence, which is a shame because she looked pretty photogenic (the cyclist, too), but the bunny made it, and ran back over my way.
I was prepared to ride out in front of traffic to alert them to bunny's presence if needed, however, bunny seemed to be perfectly comfortable scampering in the street. I noticed his speed was just what was needed to avoid cars and bikes. I see him many mornings munching the green lawns, along with his brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins, great aunts, grand parents, and neighbors, the quail family. Bunnies and bicycles in the street.
Also: four kids cycling to school. For a few moments, the planet seemed to be spinning right. Get up. Go ride.
