Post Holiday Doldrums and Accidental Haiku



I don't want to be alone, I want to be left alone.
Audrey Hepburn


sluggish, sinuses
on fire, don’t wanna know how
much weight I’ve put on*


* was compiling bodily complaints and realized they came out to exactly seventeen syllables, easily divisible into a traditional five-seven-five structure...making my whining about minor seasonal ailments a completely accidental and spontaneous complaint-haiku...which might be really spiritual...or poetic.......or neither....perhaps funny?...if so, that’s at least as good as either spiritual or poetic...at least to my current state of mind...which let’s face it, is pretty typical for the time of year...minus the all-too-common post-holiday colds or emotional wounds...no fights with family members, this year...not even close...seriously...and, to the best of my knowledge at this point, on the early evening of the 28th, nothing caught from little relatives sneezing on me....the days are getting longer by a couple seconds with every sunrise, and 2011, less than a week ahead, is shaping up already to be a year of momentous events...in my little universe, at least...(but more on those, later)...best wishes, namaste, & all that to all you Floating Glowing Beings of Pure Love out there who give Yoga for Cynics meaning by reading (even when its author's in a crappy mood)...

Dear Uncle Dr. Jay,

Love the Audrey Hepburn quote, drjay.

And I hope that you're feeling better soon, although the weight thing is something else. I'm trying to not put back on the little I've lost, but I find the indoor trainer so boring, and biking in under-40s weather is too painful.

And so glad your holiday went smoothly...nothing gets to ya like those emotional wounds. Ugh.

I can't wait to hear what you've got in the works for the new year...sounds exciting! Shall we expect YFC studios to spring up here 'n there? Hmmm.

So, namaste to you, O Grand Leader of all Floating Glowing Beings of Pure Love, and hey...I love the crappy mood posts!
