The Lighter Side of JzB

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

Retirement Blues. (There be dragons!)

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.

Carpe Diem #249, compassion

what can it lead to
but sadness


on the kitchen wall
a drab brown house spider
compassion fails


Forgot to link in on Inner Beauty


I'm going to be mostly off line for the next couple of weeks.
Stay well, everyone.


  1. I will miss you. My visits to you have become a daily habit that nourishes me in ways you can not imagine! I hope you are well and I look forward to your return. May the next weeks be a respite for you.

  2. Thanks, Wabi

    I am well, and looking forward to the respite.


  3. have a wonderful respite / we all need one

  4. I will miss you too. Must look to see why you are leaving. Hoping no health or family health problems. We'll be here when you get back.

  5. Enjoy your break we will miss you.

  6. Enjoy your break.. seems like there will be two of us on sabbatical


This is a fun blog. Light-hearted banter is welcome. Snark is not. If you want to fight, find my other blog.

Play nice, and we'll all have fun.

I like to return visit, when I can - but I need to find you. If you have multiple blogs, please leave a direct link to the appropriate post.
