Friday Morning Haiku

Wait­ing for hus­band
To come home from Van­cou­ver
My tablet needs him!

My crap­py charg­er cable still worked when he left a cou­ple of days ago even if I had to do some fid­dling for sev­er­al min­utes before it start­ed charg­ing so I let hus­band take the good charg­er with him. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, mine stopped work­ing com­plete­ly yes­ter­day and now my tablet is out of juice. Sad lla­ma. :-(

Any­way, my desk­top com­put­er and I are try­ing to rekin­dle the flame of our old love for the time being. I’ve real­ly noth­ing to com­plain about my desk­top com­put­er. Only thing is, sit­ting in front of it for hours makes my back hurt! Get­ting old real­ly sucks, kids! Enjoy your youth while it lasts!

Not an out­door type
But I sure do love nature
It’s com­pli­cat­ed.

I love nature. I love tak­ing pic­tures of beau­ti­ful, nat­ur­al land­scapes. I love being alone with nature. But an out­door type, I am not. I don’t go camp­ing. I don’t take long hikes or climb moun­tains. I’m afraid of any ani­mals that could poten­tial­ly harm me even though I real­ly have no inten­tions to harm them (with the excep­tion of annoy­ing mos­qui­toes and black flies—I hate them with a pas­sion and would kill them over and over again.) I fear ticks and poi­son ivy so I don’t go off trails by rule. I’m not real­ly super adven­tur­ous even though I love long road trips and love find­ing amaz­ing best-kept-secret places wher­ev­er I go.

I just love going to places with nat­ur­al beau­ty where I could feel safe. I find trav­el a lot more enjoy­able when I don’t have to fear for my life or my safe­ty or have to do any­thing over­ly phys­i­cal. It may sound like I’m the type that would enjoy trav­el­ling to big cities, but I’m not. Not at all. I don’t like going to places with a lot of peo­ple.

Like I said, it’s com­pli­cat­ed. Only my hus­band can under­stand my trav­el pref­er­ences. He’s the best trav­el com­pan­ion I could pos­si­bly have.

Adden­dum: I orig­i­nal­ly post­ed this as Fri­day Night Haiku even though it was still Fri­day morn­ing. D’oh! Obvi­ous­ly, my brain reaaaal­l­ly can’t wait for this week­end to start!

Friday Morning Haiku

I dreamed of Ice­land
A water­fall in West Fjords
Next to a stair­case

I must’ve been cursed by the Ice­landic elves when I was in Ice­land, which would explain my con­stant long­ing and yearn­ing for the coun­try. It’s a bit like being in love with an unat­tain­able per­son who doesn’t even know that you exist. You know, like a celebri­ty.

But then again, Ice­land IS a celebri­ty and I’m just one of its gazil­lion ador­ing fans who are lucky enough to have been to one of its live shows.
