she often dreamed that she could
then one day she did

when it all goes wrong for life

Labor Day Is About…

In the US, Labor Day is about the same as Memorial Day, Presidents Day and Veterans Day. These are days of national remembrance. We remember not to go to work. Long weekend.

Columbus Day the same, unless you happen think about the Native American holocaust. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, unless you’re woke. Tax Independence Day (April 14) if you’re a Libertarian.

New Year’s and St. Patrick’s Day (booze), 420 Day (weed), Halloween and Easter (sugar), Thanksgiving (turkey), Christmas (presents), Independence Day (fireworks).

Holidays I celebrate: Pi Day (March 14), National Spaghetti Day (January 4), Name Your Car Day (October 2).

haiku plus

cat watches bluebird
electricity provides
then fuse blows indoors

that’s it in a nutshell. cat waits awhile but master has gone to the store. old-school, cat mopes outside, catches bird and plays with it but really, hanging out in the house, food and water dishes handy, is the way to go. Streaming while relaxing.
