Kafkaish image
of soul’s transition from life

I post therefore I make mistakes… Got a problem with that!

Some of you may know that I took early retirement from my marketing position due to health issues.
Years of pressure and stress has taken its toll on me. While I survived a major stroke a number of years ago, I still suffer from manageable Aphasia and memory loss problems. This was recently amplified by heart issues resulting in a triple bypass.
I resigned my position because I could no longer trust what I thought I was saying or writing was accurate.
I started writing Haiku and Senryu because they allowed me to work in a smaller format. I find it is too easy for me to get lost in my words when writing longer posts. The freedom from word count, rhyming, and rules that the forms offer, suits me
So if you observe me omitting words or notice I make multiple corrections to my posts, just chalk it up to someone who will never be a professional writer and just wants to share his thoughts.
