The Lighter Side of JzB

Here you will find photos, poetry, and possibly some light-hearted foolishness. For the Heavier Side

Every day visits*
From Moose, Goose, and Orb Weaver
All seized by Haiku

"Why moose and goose?" you may ask. Back on 2/04/13 Pirate wrote a haiku with an elk in it, and I responded with
one with a moose and then included him every day. A few days later in comments Mystic asked "Where's the goose?"
So I started including her with this post on 2/07. A week later on the 14th, Mark Readfern
asked for and received a spider. The rest is history.

*Well, most days, anyway. Grant me a bit of poetic license.

Shadow Shot Sunday - Mellow Yellow Monday

New Years at the Beach

Some of the granddaughters are in Florida,
visiting their cousins.
This New Years Eve day pic was sent via cell phone.

Bright sun, rolling waves,
Sand between my toes: best way
To ring out the old.

Shadow Shot Sunday 2



  1. I love the sand and dea so much that I live in such a world on my Mornington Peninsula! Lovely photo!

  2. Lovely seaside photo. We rang in the new year to warmth, too, with highs in the 70s. Fine with me!

  3. I wouldn't mind some of that sand between my toes right now!

    Happy New Year!


    Shadows around me, shadows above;
    Menacing shadows? No, just of love.
    Shadows to guide me through each today,
    Shadows around me at work or play.

    Here's my Mellow Yellow. Have a fruitful year of the Dragon!

  5. The beach is a fun place to start anew with the ebb and flow of the tides, and of course, much laughter from lil ones!!
