A Quick and Dirty Catch-up…
8th Adventure – getting a haiku accepted into Sidelines, Simmons lit. magazine. Not a big adventure, but nice to get a poem in the mag two years running (two last year, I’m slipping).
9th – Going to Boston Beerworks for the first time on 12 March. I decided it was no longer fair that I wasn’t supposed to drink at all (thanks to issues from a brain tumor I didn’t ask for), and so after nearly 12 years of nothing more than a couple of sips of alcohol, I drank two beers and a little vodka (over the course of the entire evening). I’m not going to go crazy, of course, because that would be stupid, but I’m not always going to say no. A defiant adventure, it was. Although the Beerworks is nice, and it was a fun evening with friends.
10th – I joined Haiku a Day on Facebook, and will test my mettle with the poetry style I love writing. I reserve the right, however, to fall back on my older stash, and I firmly believe that haiku poems can be in two parts, like chapters. Themed haiku.
11th – Friday 19 March I tried JPLicks ice cream for the first time – kahlua. Yummy, but definitely get a cup because it is drippy!
