The Last (January) Haiku

| January 30, 2016

Wow—I don’t know where this first month of 2016 disappeared to. It has gone lightning fast. I had an interview on January 26, 2016, which was the inspiration for this haiku. Although I did not get this position just being given the chance to interview was a great morale booster. So, if you are struggling […]

Fridge Philosophy

| January 21, 2016

What does your refrigerator (the outside not what’s on the inside—that’s a discussion for another day on another website) say about your attitude toward life, where you’ve been and where you’re going?

The ‘M’ could stand for ‘My’ as shown above but do feel free to add your own M-word (miserable? mystifying? maddening?). Here you go—hope it […]

This week’s ‘EH’ (Employment Haiku)

| January 6, 2016

Of course the job search and the subsequent (often agonizing) flurry of activity as you submit application after application is a serious matter but sometimes you just have to step back and try and see the humour in it. Please feel free to share your own creative efforts (haiku or otherwise) in the comments or […]
