What's going on, Dustin?! What do you mean? Stop blogging...? Stop writing haiku? Just yesterday a young lady on my Slovenian blog asked me if what she had experienced and formulated in words a few days before was a haiku. It was and I told her so! She had written 'her first haiku!:' She was overjoyed, and me too. To hear a child crying in the dark of night!:)

Wow, I was really worried!:) Sometimes I see things black and white!:) I'm sorry to hear that. But, on the other hand, speaking from my one year experience in blogging, I know that certain things come to an end.Or they don't!:) Just a few days ago I was sure my Metaphysical Clown was dead. Now it seems it is not. You'll see. May your decision, whatever it be, be good!:))

Dustin - like Borut, I'm relieved to hear that you're only stepping away from your blog, but I hope it's only to take a break and not a result of burnout. One thing I've experienced in the Blog World is the sense that one must produce: a veritable "publish or perish". There are more important things in the world than blogging. Here's hoping that you're doing them.

This waterfall's melodious voice
Was famed both far and near;
Although it long has ceased to flow,
Yet still with memory's ear
Its gentle splash I hear.

Fujiwara no Kinto (966-1041)

The translation into English is old and awkward, and not mine. (In Finnish I had a better translation...)

The consolation for me, dustin, is that I'm sure we won't lose touch.

Hi Dustin,
I wondered what you meant...
I can see a blog being a bit of a chore, but I look forward to reading more of your wonderful haiku in many other places!
