Yeah, I'm just springin' into action here...

Quote du jour: Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
- Rainer Maria Rilke

[Whaddya mean 'what does that mean'? It's poetry. You're supposed to feel it, not understand it. Intuitive, not analytical. Oh, whatever. Fine. Be that way.]

[Note to self: stop arguing with the logical half of your brain whilst on a public blog. People will think you're more weird.]

Exercise du jour: I am going to pedal. On my bicycle. I have sworn it.

Okay, so I should stop with the swearing already. I go through my life like a man late for the bus; running to catch up, I'll settle for getting to the destination somehow. In other words, walked 1-1/2 miles with Manuel.

Enjoy the bike ride. :)

Welcome back, Merry - I sure hope your job situ calms down soon!

The mouse is like a sulking child that hates poetry. She likes the half naked pics of Hugh Jackman better. Isn't it Friday?

What? Monday? Crap!

Nothing wrong with poetry, as long as you don't expect it to put food on the table.

Enjoy your spring ride! It's still too cold here for me to consider it spring yet.

exercise haiku

I will walk my dogs
up the mountain and around
then eat chocolate

jumping rope is hard
better sports bra is needed
getting too old...sigh

Amy said...

can of worms open
sad girl writes too much haiku
mail full, unfollow!

Cherry blossoms fall
Haiku poems make me smile
Work looms like storm clouds
