Beauty Ripens

“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.”

~Joseph Campbell

haikuToday’s Haiku:

beauty ripens
as I hush my mind
sounds of nature

Have a terrific day!



A Creative Nugget Appears

“The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”

~Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

Today’s Haiku:

in a distant fog
a creative nugget appears
cradles gently


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

Today’s Haiku:

glowing street lamps
find delusions
lurking in the shadows


Inky Solemn Sky

waynedyer-you choose haiku

Today’s Haiku:

inky, solemn sky
lightning carves a daring path—
the next adventure


Today, an acquaintance of mine wrote a Facebook post stating, “Stop venerating Dr. Wayne Dyer, please.” He apparently gave bad advice in one of his books. Just wondering how many of you were led astray by the self-help guru?

Or did you take from him what you needed and let the rest go?

Have a peaceful day!
