autumn light
I lower the window
cover my child’s feet

 

paint by number
the child’s river
escapes its bank

p.s. Update (oct. 15, 2007) Looking for Law-relating posting? See Blawg Review #130. This week, the compilation of notable recent material from across the blawgisphere is coming simultaneously from two mediation-oriented weblogs and continents — Geoff Sharp has the Southern Hemisphere edition from New Zealand at his mediator blah blah site, and Diane Levin has the up-over edition, from Boston, at Online Guide to Mediation. Diane and Geoff remind us that this Thursday, Oct. 18, is Conflict Resolution Day. Each semi-Blawg-Review would have been a fine compilation on its own, and each has both a focus on mediation-related posting and a overview of the rest of the blawging universe.

f/k/a recently asked “what makes you blush?“, and I can reveal this morning that seeing Diane Levin’s overly-generous tribute to this weblog, at the end of her Blawg Review #130, certainly put a bit of rosy blush on my cheeks, and left me wondering how I’ll be able live up to her compliments . I’ll be attending to that task, and perhaps do a little issue-reframing, after crawling back on my futon for the first nap of this nippy Monday morning. If you came here looking for the “conscience of the blogosphere”, check out my latest cautionary advice over climbing on the anything-but-the-billable-hour bandwagon. If you’re looking for “thoughtful” commentary, you’re on your own, but welcome to browse to your heart’s (and brain’s) content. Many thanks, Diane, for your “neutral” vote of confidence.

  1. It’s good to know that poetry is safe in the hands of at least one more generation. What a talented girl she is!

  2. Hey, isn’t she in the same generation as you, Aurora? If so, there are at least two good examples that haiku is in good hands as the 21st Century unfolds and new faces join the wrinkled ones.
