In Between Here and There
All seven daily haiku from Haiku Andy 9/12/22 - 9/18/22
The last week has been a haze. Thursday before last, we moved out of our San Francisco home and took the show up to Grass Valley, except our new place won’t be ours until the 21st. We’ve been renting a cabin in Nevada City to see us through, and by us I include our dog Hank and our sibling cats Olive and Ziggy. Except I was gone most of the last work week for an onsite work thing down in Cupertino. (You might recognize the Very Famous Building in some the haiku photos.)
Anyway, the move has inspired (or shaken out of me) a lot of haiku, which will be appearing in the weeks to come. Oh, and today would’ve been my father’s 95th birthday. So much going on behind everything, as usual.
I wish I had some clever little essay-ish piece on haiku and the nature of being to insert here. Maybe next week?
Here are the week’s haiku, and where I sent them.

I hope you enjoyed the haiku and the photos. Remember, I’d be happy to send you one of these cards. Just DM me and I’ll put your name in the hat.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go dance in the rain!
