A Birthday card featuring three rabbits in various shades of brown, one above the other, and text ‘Happy Birthday – From The Unbearable Lightness Of Rabbits’

The words are a play on the notion of the unbearable lightness of being – from the title of Milan Kundera’s novel. The idea behind the words springs from Nietzsche’s idea that we live an endless repetition of our lives and that the way to honour the moment is to recognise that and behave accordingly.

Kundera argued that if Nietzche was wrong and there was no terrible weight of responsibility throughout time to which we owe our conduct, then we are free simply to be. What makes that lightness unbearable is that there is no security, because the weight is also an anchor. But the realisation that each moment is lived on the growing tip of existence means that we must cast off, and float.

Well, it’s a prospect that has to be faced with humour. And with something down to earth – like rabbits.

It is not an answer, but it does give us some respite from the weighty problem.

If the idea of floating takes your fancy, try this card and Just Float, Baby.
