GHM Dallas: December 1st, 2012

Posted by on 12.22.12 in 2012, Events, Haiku | 0 comments

Thanks to the Dallas Flea, I had a place to start my Dallas adventures with ample inspiration!

Jesse (aka the MOST amazing security guard in the universe) guarded my table against the hot Dallas wind that ripped through the South Side of Dallas at breakneck speeds.

We wrote haiku about vendors, and small businesses over on Lamar- and tried to get them to play as well, but our most exciting moment happened between two sisters who initially needed parking, but returned to write haiku.

The elder sister approached me and asked if she could write a sister-tribute. “I’ve been having a really hard year” she said, “and my sister has really been there for me”

Clearly, I was not going to say her nay…

My sister loves me
Cradling my heart in hand
Such a gentle push

Is what emerged on the sidewalk- and the younger sister, once finding it, embraced her sister in a hug so tight, faces disappeared becoming one sister-body. We all cried. And were happy. And they walked off soon after arm-in-arm.

Then I called my sister ;-)

Enjoy the Top Photos, Y’all- Including a HAPPENING at the Opening Celebration of the new Perot Museum, where museum-goers could not say enough awesome things about the museum and it’s offerings!!!!

And the glorious Closing Ceremony at the Foundry, where tons of late-afternoon beer-garden-goers took up chalk and decorated the garden and it’s tables with haiku!
