I’m constantly trying to come up with creative ways to keep my artistic disciplines a daily habit. In December of 2009, I was thinking about my relationship with marijuana. Did it help or hurt my creative pursuits? I couldn’t decide. I thought about how I smoked spliffs every day & how I desired to write a haiku every day. I found myself deep in a stoned reverie. As the spliff smoke slowly drifted from my lips, an exciting epiphany came to me: I decided that I would write a haiku (renamed high-coo) on a rolling paper every time I smoked a spliff. That way, regardless of whether the marijuana was helping or hurting my writing, I would always have a haiku to show for it. An entire year and more than a thousand poems (or spliffs, depending on how you look at it) later, I had created this unique album of haiku. High or not, high-coo lives on!
