Travel – Typhoon Haiku

So yet another tropical system is mucking up my travels! I was suppose to fly to Guangzhou this morning, but I ended up walking to work dressed like this…


In this…


And why would my crazy self walk to work in that? Because last September I promised myself I would walk to work every single day for a year. I have honored that! I have walked to work on beautiful days, freezing days, snowing days and 7 weeks of raining and near freezing days, scorching heat and now typhoon (aka hurricane). It is .98 miles to work, it takes between 12-15 minutes depending on my mood, the weather and traffic. I even walked there 36 hours after my lipo, now that was just stupid, lol, but I did it πŸ™‚

I wrote this out this morning, while lounging in bed, listening to the wind howling and the rain coming down through my open bedroom window…

A Haiku for Typhoon Haikui

As the wind does blow
I watch a leaf settle down
Then blown away gone

Flight rebooked for tomorrow πŸ™‚

      • Thanks Sandi…I’m wondering if you know how to post video? I hope to video the emerging butterfly πŸ™‚ I’m glad you are enjoying this little summer monarch project…but as a midwyfe, I kinda knew you’d be on board ;O xo

  1. Loved that you wrote a haiku for Typhoon Haikui! . . . and I love haikus!! It runs in my family, too. My daughter exchanges haikus via text with a best friend on frustrating work days. One for you –
    Blue rain coat Sandi
    No typhoon wind will stop walk
    Must a promise keep

    Best wishes!

  2. Wow, I am in awe! Your work ethic (and your field!) is an inspiration! I am so happy that you found my blog, because it’s given me a virtual path back to yours…what a pleasure! Looking so forward to perusing some more.
    Have a beautiful week!
