About Margaret Dornaus

I’m a writer and a teacher, as well as a haiku-doodler. I live in a beautiful woodland setting, surrounded by native oak forests, that inspires me to record haiku snapshots of luna moths and our resident roadrunner, and even an occasional black bear as it hightails it across the top of my road, my mongrel dog barking at its heels as I watch with wonder. My work as a travel writer has appeared in publications from The Dallas Morning News to the Robb Report. You can find examples of my travel writing–as well as excerpts from a travel memoir I’m working on–at my other WordPress site, Travelin’ On. What more than that do you need to know? Only that I started this blog with an eye toward collaboration. Got a haiku? Send it my way. . . . I’m all about new visions & voices. Best, Margaret

    Nice, Margaret. At first I thought bitter was brittle, good touch. You made a good splash in NFTG. A lot of good writing in there, but I have to find another way to read it. I hate that format and I am reluctant to print out so many pages.


    • Thanks, Sully. You were right, it was brittle . . . I guess I was feeling bitter when I posted (which I sometimes do from memory–oops!). I’m not through reading the new Gean myself, but I have to agree with you about the format being tricky to read . . . I find that when I enlarge the print the page starts to wobble up and down (no, it’s not my eyesight!) when I try to advance the page. Still, I’m going to persevere for the payoff!

      All best, M.
