Sometimes he’s macho –

other times he likes to use

cherry blossom soap

.

This is meant to be a yin yang sort of character study in appreciation of my husband. B definitely has his “yang” qualities. He is (or used to be) a baseball fanatic. He can be very forward and aggressive when it comes to his interest. Other times he’s quiet and gruff. But he also has his gentler, more sensitive, more “yin” side to him. When I first got to know him I was stunned by the beautiful tapestries hanging in his apartment. They were delicate in a way that was very much in contrast with his video game collection. As I grew to know B he would sometimes surprise me, out of the blue, with sensitivity that was beyond the usual. Lately I have discovered that he also likes my handmade cherry blossom soap. It’s delightfully floral and I’m so glad B can appreciate it.

At night, in bed

we whisper of our daughter:

“She’s an artist…”

I’m f***ing pissed off.

Can’t he stop networking for

5 minutes to help?

.

Really. Bills pile up.

The house grows messy. Xmas

flights still not arranged.

.

How can one be great

if one can’t handle the job

of the everyday?

.

I realize this is

NOT haiku in SPIRIT but….

still 5.7.5
