Lurking in the Alley

Hello everyone!

I love finding quotes each Wednesday that sum up how I’m feeling. This one, by Earl Nightingale, is perfect for my thoughts this week. Perhaps this is why I continue to add more freelancing projects to my already overloaded schedule. Read on for today’s haiku.

“The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. Job security is gone. The driving force of a career must come from the individual. Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!”
~Earl Nightingale

glowing street lamps
find delusions
lurking in the shadows

Girl on the Go: Paddle Boarding

Since my recent sailing excursion, I decided to add paddle boarding to my Girl on the Go list. With fall only days away, I think I’ll mark this one for Summer 2016—unless of course I go somewhere tropical this winter! One can only hope!

Today’s Haiku:

legs quake as she stands
paddling through calm waters
she learns a new skill

Have a great day!

Sailing on Lake Pepin

Happy Monday!

I had the great pleasure of riding on a sailboat yesterday, Sunday. Adlai’s friend from childhood invited us to join him and his family for an adventure on the water. I was so excited to get out on Lake Pepin; it was sunny and warm with wind speeds of about 10 miles an hour. Check this off of my Girl on the Go list, aka bucket list!

My first time sailing!

Hanging in there!

Thanks Haiku Horizons for the haiku prompt, “before.”

Today’s Haiku:

warm sun on my back
sails billowing in the wind
last jaunt before fall

Have a great day!
