It has been a week. That is the longest absence I’ve had from blogging during a non-vacation week. I have missed you. And Haikai.
Why, you ask?
Stephen King wrote that “Writing is a support system for life, not the other way around.” Life is happening for the Tassone family. Our son works toward attaining the rank of Eagle Scout. He began work on his service project last weekend, after months of planning and preparation. He and I worked closely together on the days preceding and following, after his Eagle coach alerted me to the necessity of such action.
Between his service project, and my other personal and professional responsibilities, I needed to hold off on poetry.
Life is still happening. Frank has more service days ahead. I will continue to work with him. Therefore, expect me when you seem me.
Thank you for your patience. And thank you for witnessing, with me, that Haikai matters!
