Ode to An Orator

Speaking for myself,
I don’t have faintest clue
Of what I’m saying



He cried, seeing the statue.
But, then, it was big.
Inspired by Merriam Webster’s Word of the Day, as used in Gulliver’s Travels.


January is a busy time for business people. In the UK, if you are required to submit a personal tax return for the year ended 5th April, 2013, then you have until 31st January, 2014 to do so.

Still, as busy as the month may be, remember that it is also important to relax and have fun.

Working to Live #1

Owl 1

Crying havoc and
Letting slip the dogs of war.
Where’s the fun in that?

Business is not all about work. I believe that we work to live, not live to work. So it is good, sometimes, to relax a little and take the pressure off ourselves. As part of that relaxation I like taking photographs and writing all sorts of material.

So I thought it would be fun to take some well-known quotations and give them a haiku/senryu twist. Why don’t you join in. Your business will feel much better for it.
