With Easter Sunday approaching, I thought I should present my favorite Easter animal, the lamb! I mean, as much as I find bunnies or little chicks cute, for me nothing compares to the sweetness of the little lamb.

So many things come to mind when I think of sheep: The pastoral life depicted in Christopher Marlowe's The Passionate Shepherd to His Love, a new spring cardigan my friend's mom made for me, my grandmother spinning wool, the lost sheep which was found by the Good Shepherd, insomnia and how I have tried to count sheep only to see that it doesn't work, The Silence of the Lambs, humbleness, gentleness and innocence, the Passion of Christ -and of course, the lamb that Greeks traditionally spit-roast to feast with the family on Easter Sunday!
So, what comes to mind when YOU think of sheep?
