Between the sell/buy/move chaos and my current haiku obsession I’ve neglected to share links for some of the stuff I’ve been doing for my day-job. I may go back to some prior months in the days to come, but for today I’m going to stick to this month's work, which (somewhat ironically) means I’m stepping… Continue reading Women: We Get Things Done
Proud to have one of my haiku chosen for the theme of Emergence. Thanks Freya! You can find some hope for spring (and other great haiku) at Pure Haiku Plus (spoiler alert) there’s more coming down the road!
wistful dreams recalled of daring easy riders conjuring desire I actually was a too young to have any thoughts about Easy Rider when it first came out but as a teenage I became obsessed with guys on motorcycles. And Peter Fonda on a bike-woo hoo! Probably a good thing I didn't see the movie until… Continue reading Easy Rider

Wanted: All Wizards With Foolish Incantations And Sage Spells To Spare To Gather All Your Powers And Align The Stars Again This fun little tanka was brought to you thanks to the inspiration of FOWC (power) and Putting My Feet in the Dirt's fabulous phrase "foolish incantations" which seemed to go hand-in-hand with Sue's photo prompt.

ripples stir the calm as indigo shadows fall rising, she stands guard I think the current craziness of my life is reflected in the direction (away from tranquil!) this haiku traveled! But much thanks to Sue for the photo prompt. It felt good to write a bit of something! ❤
