Okay, so it's not Thursday. But I've been lax lately so I'm trying to get back into the saddle with postings and such. I wrote the initial seed for this haiku back in November, and I've come back to it every so often since then to sharpen the edges and polish the facets.

I'm into lifting weights, running, and biking. In general, I'm a hit-and-run athlete. I've done hapkido, snorkling, deep sea fishing, karate, rockwall climbing, horseback riding, parasailing, hiking, etc. I will try anything active!
I'm also a migrant creative and have expressed myself through painting (done shows and sold stuff!), drawing, novel writing, poetry (published!), songwriting, playing piano, and guitar.
And, yes, I am a Zen Buddhist.
