In thinking about how my snapshot of days through haiku differs from my usual blog posts, I realized that the short form doesn’t allow room for complaint or self-denigration. I might do too much of both as a rule.
So here’s to a fresher, more immediate style of blog posting.
With K at the office today, I can watch Kimmel at lunch without restraint.
I made too many lentils for last night’s linguine/lentil dish, so I may be on the hunt for a good lentil burger recipe this afternoon.
Finn did not bark at Winnie today. Winnie did not bark at Finn.
I don’t know why but watching a squirrel cross the sidewalk with an apple core in her mouth this morning filled me with gladness.
Trout lily’s up. Solomon seal is not. Will I or won’t I see a jack-in-the-pulpit this year? The suspense. Virginia bluebells have spread — how nice!
Going to California for three weeks next month and early June. Given that it was 27 degrees here yesterday and that the weather in LA seems to have calmed down, I can’t wait.

Finished round 8 or 10 or who’s counting anymore of my novel. Cut around 5,000 words. But not enough. So later today I will copy the file, rename it “shorter Weight of Cloth” and delete five chapters. I have a pretty good idea which ones.
Maybe I’ll publish those orphans here?
