A Dottie Dot award . . .


You know you’ve arrived when:

You learn you’re one of three recipients of the Dottie Dot award for your blue moon haiga on Haiku Bandit Society’s Moon Viewing site.  Thank you, Dottie!

I’m especially happy because I have been wanting to share this particular haiga for a while.  The picture is one that I took several years ago on a trip to Bodega Bay, CA.  The “fish” window with the blue glass bottles is located at the restaurant Alfred Hitchcock used in his filming of “The Birds.”  You might remember that plate glass window was the one that the diners peered out of when a man filling his car with gas struck a match (as the ominous seagulls hovered overhead) before he and his car went up in flames.  Very dramatic.  Not that you needed to know all that; still, I like to know where pictures are taken.   Today, sans killer seagulls, the view is much more tranquil.

Anyway, thank you, Dottie!  I feel my work is done, at least for today.  Happy Labor Day all!

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
