depending

Carpe Diem #1126 depend on yourself

Stop to ask directions in a small community and one will invariably get excellent directions.  Though they might include reference to where the old something or other once was.  Or left at Joe Smith's house.  The modern GPS can be just a useless at times leaving one to wander looking for signs...

  3. I love the humour in this, Janice - it reminds me of when I lived in Ireland and had to ask for directions!

  4. I love your haibun and that haiku is very powerful. I do believe we do find our way...gps or maps, we are we are supposed to be so many times even if we think sometimes we took a wrong turn.

    1. So true, C-L. Some of the best things we saw while traveling were 'accidents'!
