Hi everyone! I’m Seymour. Since I travel with Teresa to most of the places she goes, she asked me to be a regular guest blogger here to share my adventures and haikus with all of you. I’m so excited!
Two weekends ago, Teresa and I went down to Carlsbad for a Partch concert. Before the show, we had a fabulous breakfast at Honey’s in Encinitas, avoided going into the two nearby yarn stores, and went to the beach to kill some extra time. I would like to try surfing someday, but for now I’m content to watch and write haikus.

This past weekend, we flew up to San Francisco to attend the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. I got to see and/or hear Patty Griffin, Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin, Hot Rize, Odetta, Zakir Hussain, Ben Kweller, Elvis Costello, Gogol Bordello, Loudon Wainwright III, and Iris Dement! Here I am during Ben Kweller’s set at the Star Stage:
At the festival, Teresa worked on knitting a sock that is far too big for me. When I wasn’t listening to the music, I napped a little and got to know a couple of her friends who recently moved away from Los Angeles. I also struck some poses… with three humans and one small monkey finishing two bottles of wine, many silly pictures were taken. Does anyone know any wine companies who need a monkey model?
I wrote a haiku to commemorate the occasion. It was inspired by Odetta, who sang about her little heart. Unfortunately, I wasn’t close enough to see if hers is orange and plastic too.
