It’s always good to start the day with some haiku.

From Kid No. 1:

Musicians write songs

Some of them are popular

Do the Harlem Shake


Isaac Newton said

that what goes up must come down

So why do leaves float?

Kid 2:

I ate a sandwich

Then I wanted soup instead

Mommy left me none


Who am I? Falling.

Down I come from the sky. Float.

Do you know my name?


Sweet chocolate treat

bad for your health but who cares?

making a big mess.

    Tabatha: A friend of ours stole the cheese ball from the reception after Vonnegut. That is his claim to fame. Did you see Allen Ginsberg at Radford? That was around the same time period, I think. Maybe a couple of years later…

    What excellent haiku! I can’t pick a favorite.

    I wanted to comment on your Eudora Welty post — my mind is boggled that you met her! I saw Kurt Vonnegut speak at VT & wish I could remember it better.
