“Write a Haibun.”
“Write a haibun of 44 – to 150 words of some event in your life – a love gone wrong, birth of a child, a daily walk, a day out of a vacation…anything will work! Remember: haibun are based on a true experience in your life; it is NOT flash fiction.”
With two holidays coming close together this year, I sat down
to create some greeting cards. The beliefs of mixed marriage
couples, I often combine in one card.
I was deeply saddened to realize how many people–family
and friends–I have lost in the past couple of years.
Card lists are well outdated. My circle of support
and love has diminished.
