Whew! It’s been a busy week for me, but as life has a way of making you do what it wants (not what you want) I have spent the last few days resting.
This haiku is based on a true story. This past Saturday, in an attempt to setup a “standing” desk for teaching, I dropped a large—but thankfully empty—plastic container on my right big toe. The edge of the container landed in such a way that it made contact directly on the bed of my toe nail causing severe pain—like really severe. I cursed. Loudly—and later swelling which prevent me from walking in a normal gait.
For most of Saturday and Sunday when I wasn’t teaching online, I was resting in bed. I’m thankful for the rest because sometimes you just have to slow down and if you don’t do it yourself, life will find a way to make you do it.
I’ve been working on a number of projects—which I’m REALLY excited about—but I did need a break so I’m thankful for it.
On June 7, 2021, I plan to launch my debut haiku collection, Haiku Ponderings, based on my podcast The Haiku Pond. The ebook will be available on 10+ retailers world wide including the big ones such as Apple, Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble and many others. You can pre-order today at http://books2read.com/haiku
Here’s today’s haiku. I’m off to rest some more before teaching my evening lessons. Happy Tuesday everyone!
