Day 32 of 100, Northern Jutland, Denmark

I wonder what will become of this hundred day diary. Or rather, what will come after it.

A hundred days of haiku? You’d like that wouldn’t you, the 3 of you that read this thing?

In the icy country
A city slicker freezes
Not dressed for winter

It would be utterly terrible, and a ridiculous amount of fun.

    Wonderful haiku. And the picture. Entertained the haiku/image idea for quite some time too – still high on my list. But once I sat down and started to add words to an image idea, the project turned more into something like one haiku per week. Words don’t come that easy to me, and being a perfectionist doesn’t help either. But practice will do. So thanks for the inspiration, and back to the keyboard.

      Mix it up with a limerick every now and then ;)

    Hi, I love your work and ideas. After 100 days, take a brake and start again in september

    1. Charlene says:

      That would be entirely too easy!

  3. Sean Hansen says:

    I guess I’m the third one to read this? :-)
    Keep it up. I love the pictures and the daily thoughts, pondering, and haiku.

    1. Charlene says:

      If I slip up / get desperate for something to write, there might be a haiku or 2 thrown in. You’ve been duly warned ;)

  4. Ian Boys says:

    At least 4 of us read this :)

    Keep going.

    1. Charlene says:

      Goodness, you just increased my readership by 25%!

  5. Brian Miller says:

    At least 5, by my count.

    Re: the haiku. Go for it.

      With a few keystrokes
      You have felled my triple count
      Raising it to five

    Very cinematic…

    And seems like a larger project/book in the making.

    1. Charlene says:

      Ohhh, i have one in the making! It’s been in the making for months, but I’ve been waiting for some peace and quiet to get cracking on it…. Some day, I’ll stop procrastinating…i swear!
