A few months ago, I traded my natural, burnt-butter shade of blonde for "it's fake and I know it" platinum. "The world will fall in love with you," my stylist cooed, and initially, against all odds, it came to pass.
Men whistled from car windows, park benches and, in one memorable instance, an organic vegetable stand.
My husband proposed a trip to the lingerie store. My best friend accused me of using Botox - then demanded my doctor's phone number.
I was feeling pretty good until an elderly woman I'm fond of fixed me with a cold, flinty eye and said, "Good Lord, you've gone glamorous."

In the book, "Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence" by Doris Pilkington Garimara, the fence was used in the 1930s by three Indigenous Australian girls for their route back home to Jigalong.
The girls taken from their parents in Western Australia as part of the Stolen Generation, escaped from the Moore River Native Settlement mission where they were being held and walked back to their family at Jigalong by following the rabbit-proof fence.
Phillip Noyce's masterpiece.

Richard Loeb is still a little child emotionally, still talking to his teddy bear.... He is infantile. I should say somewhere around four or five years old, perhaps a little older .... Nathan Leopold also is the host of a relatively infantile emotional aspect of his personality but ...he has reacted by a defense mechanism, which has produced the final picture of a marked disordered makeup in the direction of developing feelings of superiority.

Rabbit’s Moon is a fable of the unattainable (the moon) and combines elements of commedia dell’arte with Japanese myth.
