Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Haiku Wednesday - Resolutions -- Er . . . Doldrums

 Doldrums (Update)

My brain must be in
Winter doldrums -- that's why I
Wrote on last week's theme! 


Resolution passed.
Gov. will sign. No picketers
At child's funeral

No resolutions
For me.  I'm not perfect but
I just don't keep them

I need new glasses
Lens resolution is not
Working for my eyes

Motion by half-step:
Dissonance resolution
Into consonance

Join the fun!
