Watership Down…For Rabbits


images-456We have been in two-minds about this for long time. The bloke who wrote about us originally was rather kind, quaint, an English gentleman one might say. So, we let him get away with his liberties. 

He depicted us as little creatures who were being spun by man’s manic machine of power and control. He even made us seem like a psuedo-socialist-society in embryo. All very well and good as it appeared to fit the time. Anyway, his novel was read to children because it was about sweet furry little creatures who bounced along the fields before getting eaten by a fox, cat, or kestrel.

If that wasn’t enough, there were the bloody cars that flattened our attempts to cross the roads. 

Just ask yourself whether this would have been deemed to be suitable reading for children if it had involved a group of two-legs? The answer, ladies and gentlemen of the two-legged variety, is not on your Nelly.

Whilst I am here, let me just point out that rabbits were once royal creatures. We had warrens built like castles and twenty-four hour protection. The Norman French bleeding loved us and would slit the throats of any Anglo-Saxon who tried to make off with any of our kind.


We were not even in England until our blessed William arrived.

This is the story of what happened to me when anxiety took a grip. I lost my senses, I lost my job, and I lost me. I then turned to writing to find those things that had gone missing. How can you teach when you believe that education is a business that is failing in its primary remit of helping to create a better society? Indeed, how can you teach when you believe that you have nothing of value to pass on? The book/blog is the story of my recovery from the absolute darkness of the early days. It is an Odyssey through my life over the last twelve months and a retracing of my steps to discover how I found myself there. More than all of that, it is a re-evaluation and a rejoicing of all that which I call life. Happy reading and I hope it helps. There is madness, Everyday Madness, and not all of it comes from within.
