Carpe Diem Extra -- March 18th 2020 --- CDHK Lock Down
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I think you all have noticed that I haven't posted this week, or not that much this month. Let me explain it, but I think you all will know.
As you all know I am an oncology nurse and with the Corona virus spreading all over the world it is all hands on deck with caring for our patients, and in my case, the elderly people. So I don't have time anymore to publish our regular posts. You can say that "Carpe Diem Haiku Kai goes in Lock Down.
a summer drink
now turned into a plague
I am dearly sorry that I have to "Lock Down" our wonderful Haiku Kai, but ...
Take care my beloved haiku family.

Never a need to apologize. I appreciate what you do very much. I was a nurse too and would be in the middle of it right now if my body hadn't betrayed me. May you stay well.ReplyDelete
