Very, very good question! ("By common consent" - ha!)

Tabor said...

Yes, why not?

Barry said...

Oh, the collected humanity is a cold and frosty lot Dave. Well, except for those who comment on your blog. We're all warm and friendly.

Happy New Year! Here's wishing you all the best in 2010!

A fire is started with one little match. I guess we tend our own and hope something catches.

Happy New Year.

Why not its people?

People continue
To move in the direction

Lovely idea,
Writing haiku everyday

Happy New Year, sir
Hoping two thousand and ten
Brings good health and joy.

Dave--- I am taken by your three most recent posts.... nice unity across them and the haiku ( and its almost brother) are both delicate and deadly... nicely done.

Why not tell its people. If only they'd listen. Wonderful words, Dave. Thanks.
