For my first Art Assignment, I chose #3, the indispensable object gif. I received a toy bunny when I was about 6, and we’ve been inseparable since.
As I grew up, I obviously stopped taking it everywhere with me and made friends with real people, but Bunny was safely stashed in my backpack when I first had to go to the dentist alone, when I went to give blood, when I moved away for college, when I explored the city with my first love, when I hitchhiked for the first time in my life and when I hopped on a bus to the Czech Rep to forget about a heartbreak.
One of the perks of having Bunny is that whenever I travel alone it makes for a great object to place in photographs.

"Also known as the ghost plant, Indian pipe, or corpse plant.
Unlike most plants, it is white and does not contain chlorophyll. Instead of generating energy from sunlight, it is parasitic, more specifically a myco-heterotroph. Its hosts are certain fungi that are mycorrhizal with trees, meaning it ultimately gets its energy from photosynthetic trees. Since it is not dependent on sunlight to grow, it can grow in very dark environments as in the understory of dense forest. It is often associated with beech trees.
The complex relationship that allows this plant to grow also makes propagation difficult.
The plant is sometimes completely white but commonly has black flecks and a pale pink coloration. Rare variants may have a deep red color.”
