Haiku My Heart': Stone Heart

only a stone heart could resist the temptation of cool, clear water

Haiku My Heart


Some of my favorite images that rely on words.

Seen in the parking lot of my old QFC store
 (which became, for a while, Main and Vine ) at a time when I was feeling bereft, unloved, and vulnerable.

Found in an artist's workshop  during a Day of the Dead sojourn.

Cautionary sign in a magical land called Moss Terra.

Sign outside my favorite grocery store for a sensory field trip: Metropolitan Market, Proctor District, Tacoma.

Brings back memories of browsing the stores in Joseph, Oregon with my Mom on our last trip together to Wallowa Lake to gather with two of her sisters (the third had back problems and couldn't make the trip) and some of my cousins' families.

Found in an antique store in Puyallup, Washington. Paris is such a great city to explore on foot, soaking in the sights and sounds.

Discovered while on a field trip to Lavender Festival in Sequim, Washington with my friend and neighbor Leslee.

Stuck in the Middle with You

Could U.S. politics get any crazier? I hope not.

Haiku My Heart: May the Fourth Be With You

Haiku My Heart

i invite you to
imagine living in peace
one day at a time

I have to admit that I'm finding it hard to celebrate the birthday of my country having declared its independence from Mother England, when the country was founded on institutionalized slavery, the idea that white men were created equal but but black men were less than and women weren't even considered. We tend to glorify the "all men are created equal" phrase without looking at the reality.
We can do better. We must.
