Sixty six? you said 76 at your profile, Bill :)

whatever.."I CAN" is the feeling one should always have..that makes a lot of difference :)

Good that you have, and so good is the haiku too, Bill :)

God Bless,

Yep, Devika, still 76.

Thanks, Vaughn, I needed that.

Pat, the best is yet to be, according to a rumor circulated by one Rabbi Ben Ezra, aka Robert Browning.

Thanks, my friends.

like entering
an ivy-covered cave
where light
weaves laces on the floor,
I step into myself

Many happy anniversaries, dear Bill!

Fantastic haiku and a belated happy birthday. I think once you reach your age, do anything and everything you can, and love it!

When I have moments when I feel that I'm still not in control of my writing, that it's not going where I want and how I want, I remember you Bill, and your little BIO saying how late in life you started writing haiku. You are very inspiring to me.
