Flying in the Rain – Haiku

flying in the rain

hoping throughout the journey

to land in the sun

Update (a couple of hours later)

I posted this super-quickly because the plane was about to take off. I didn’t have time to muse that this simple haiku is a metaphor for life.

Also, my wish was granted. It’s a gorgeous day in Washington. Apologies for the unedited photos – the camera today is my iPad!

Still Not a Fan of Beets…Strange In-Flight Sandwich

With apologies to the airline, I was really surprised by the flavors in the complimentary sandwich Air France served on a recent flight.

Chévre / Betterave  /Framboise


Goat Cheese / Beet / Raspberry

You heard me right – the dreaded beet in a sandwich meant for the general public. Curses!

It’s probably the only French cuisine I’ve ever tasted and disliked. I DO NOT LIKE BEETS. What a waste of the goat cheese and raspberries.


Read more about the beet problem here at I Hate Beets. There’s even a haiku. And surprisingly, lots of comments. Like politics at the moment, beets are a polarizing topic.

They look pretty, but they taste like dirt.

Haiku: Going Somewhere through O’Hare

portal to … somewhere
through the rainbow at O’Hare ~
going, going, gone

O'Hare Travelers

I really like the walkways between the concourses at O’Hare Airport. Nice job, Chicago!

I was doubly pleased when I looked at this photo after uploading it onto my Mac and saw the reflections of the passengers in the mirrored ceiling. Serendipity.

It’s the little things.
