The 8th and 10th are linked, with a shot of 9th in between

My 8th adventure this year was to get one of my haiku poems accepted into the Simmons literary magazine, Sidelines. It was my second acceptance, though I had two last year (I must be slipping!).  It’s a nice feeling, though.

My 10th was to join the Facebook group Haiku A Day.  I hope to test my creativity – give it more of a push than I have recently.  I reserve the right, however, to fall back on my older stash, and I firmly believe that haiku poems can be in two parts, like chapters.  Themed haiku. 🙂

And the 9th – Going to Boston Beerworks for the first time on 12 March.  I decided it was no longer fair that I wasn’t supposed to drink at all (thanks to issues from a brain tumor I didn’t ask for), and so after nearly 12 years of nothing more than a couple of  sips of alcohol, I drank two beers and a little vodka (over the course of the entire evening).  I’m not going to go crazy, of course, because that would be stupid, but I’m not always going to say no.  A defiant adventure, it was, I suppose.  Although the Beerworks is nice, and it was a fun evening with friends.

11th – First time at a JPLicks for ice cream.  Newbury Street.   19 March.  Kahlua – try it.  Be sure to get a cup – it’s very drippy.
