Tanka Poem on Chasing Happiness

under the feeder
flurry of activity
squirrels chasing their tails
one catches his, one does not
happiness, the tail we chase

  1. I love this one Don.
    I often feel like I am chasing my tail!
    Mark says he is going to get in touch with you soon.
    He has been really busy with the magazine lately.
    Hope you are having a great day and hope to meet you in person sometime…..I still plan on writing you a little about Omega….I am just slow to respond.
    Namaste,
    Michele

  2. Michele,

    Thanks so much. I would enjoy meeting up with Mark and you when you guys get some
    time. I’ve been busy too so I know.

    Do you photography? If so: http://www.flickr.com/photos/don-iannone/ (Several sets
    from NE Ohio.)

    Photography has sparked a new love affair for me with Greater Cleveland. We have
    so much and just miss it. i know I do!

    Namaste!

    Don
