noon
the egret shifts from stillness
to stillness

~Timothy Russell


The above haiku is the inspiration for the title of this new blog. It seems to
encompass the qualities I admire in egrets, herons and their ilk--
slow, thoughtful pacing. Their only quickness comes when they have their
target in sight.

Hi Nerissa,
Great to see you writing again.
Shouldn't a haiku be 5 vowels, 7, 5? Anyway, I look forward to reading what you have to say! Thanks, and I hope you still keep up with the food writing, Lucas

Good point, Lucas. I didn't really think about it. I just really liked the imagery. Glad to see you stopped by. :)

Hey, Linda. Nice to see you here.

Thanks for coming by, Christine. I hope, now that report card season is at a close, I'll try writing some more again.
