Wish you were here

ding ding ding! Lucy Adams gave the correct definition of the origin of "blog!" She wins a shout out!

Blogs started out similar to facebook. People posting families pictures, recipes, feelings, etc, like a diary to share with the world! Hence they were dubbed Web Logs -> weblog -> blog. We must abbreviate! And that opens another can of something I will save for another time!

Now, come away with me in a postcard for Sensational Haiku Wednesday!

Picture perfect place
Is any destination
Memories are made




Relax, enjoy, breathe
Worries wash away with tide
Take it to the beach




Having a great time
No responsibilities
Mind on vacation

Air conditioning
Stale and cold, freezing bare toes
I yearn for that beach

I didn't realize that's how blogging came to be. Man, it's changed.

Postcards sure do recall memories. Nicely done.

Two great Haiku.
My favourite was the second - I often feel that my mind is on a permanent vacation and never around when I need it.
