a private joke, I guess

I have to tell you--
Start a text message, but wait.
It won't make you laugh.

Wisdom osmosis
your words and love made friendship
become family.

Love, Kerrie

This is Kerrie.

Scott left us too soon, and I am filled with grief. He wanted me to join him in writing a haiku a day, but I considered haiku writing to be more of an unstructured thing...ironic, I know. Anyway, now I'm going to try to keep Scott's Haiku-a-Day Blog going on his behalf.

The first million or so might be sad haiku. But they will be haiku. And, it's a commitment to write at least a little every day, which I need to do as I try to find my center again.

Where do I stand?

it is a struggle
balancing relationships
on unsteady ground

Indie disappointment

when you're an asshole
admit that you are wrong and
don't do it again

Set it free

it would be healthy
to try to let sunk costs go
but the wound's still raw

Minimum wage vs living wage

if your business plan
cannot support living wages
does it really work?

Take your doom and gloom and shove it

if you think we're doomed
then kindly shut the hell up
some of us have hope

No charted path

stumbling through life
from one thing to another
is not the best way

On writing part 1

the words that you choose
change how people understand
what you are saying

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

That'll do

waiting for perfect
keeps the task from being done
shoot for good and ship

take a little time
to figure out one good thing
you can do each day

You know...Pinky did get first billing.

take over the world
Brain tries, is foiled by Pinky
who's really insane?

One game from the Super Bowl

Seattle shows pride
12th man rocks the blue and green
Hawks thunder towards 'Bowl

Going out

walking in the dark
street light and moon light show path
it's all for the dog

Who knew email was so slow?

IP cuts you off
when your payment arrives late off to get coffee

No Oval Office for Christie

small minded man
seeks revenge for presumed slight
receives just deserts

Love it or leave it

grey overcast skies
embrace the beautiful gloom Seattle winter

Snack hierarchy

oat flakes and raisins
late night snack of champions
when you're out of chips

Caught in the act

hidden in pillows
dreaming bark gives her away
evidence on film

Hawks & Hail

torrential rain falls
hail, thunder, 12th man earthquake
'Hawks win with ground game

Friday, January 10, 2014

The little white dog does not like the rain

rain splashes outside
it's time to go out becomes
it's time to go hide

I don't have to just throw it away?

modular cell phones
non-disposable tech with less waste more value

Annie Leonard talks about cell phones and Phonebloks an idea for modular cell phones. "We use our mobile phones for an average of just 18 months, at last reckoning (although that’s not fast enough for some companies, who are now offering free upgrades every year.)...If you’re reading this blog, you probably know the appalling facts. Worldwide, more than 150 million cellphones are discarded each year; almost 90 percent go to the dump instead of being recycled. Each one contains a poisoner’s handbook of toxic chemicals that are hazardous to the environment and people."

Is you, you? Or is you, me?

even with expert
health exchange navigation
questions unanswered

Shake your fist at the sky

dogs barking above
rumbling across the floor
must be 2 am

Down to the HUB

pushed it, might be bad
I'm walkin' on a bad knee
two miles there and back

can the introverts
have success in a world that
rewards extroverts

I just started reading Quiet. It's pretty interesting so far. If you are interested check it out here: Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain - Powell's Books

Walking the dog

slabs slick with night rain
careful walk out to viewpoint
watch ferry return

Beware space octopi

the little white dog
ready to stop attack from
eight armed aliens
Abbie trains everyday for the inevitable invasion.

A little caring goes a long way

A few random acts
can change the lives of people
if done with kindness
Good on the great folks at @sourcefed and @forhumanpeoples.

One ends, one starts

Watch from the viewpoint
New Year show atop Needle
fog shrouds fireworks
