random passion


a poem by Laynie gosney Knauss Zenickova Macleon

why do I think of this?

how do I make thing go smooth without confusion?

I try to avoid unnecessary puzzlement

I do mind my mood and my academic progress

a school kids have a cell phone,

he plays a game in it, NORMAL!

a human who attends high school own a individual blog,

it is free, no charge, no bills,

why not making it normal?

bb caller, t-mobile, samsung, galaxy 4, tom,

we all seem adapting ourself to a new planet—-blogging sophere

a ball which rolls with unexpected power

landing on one is good,

it speaks of your type of language…

With ink-stained lips,

The boy leaves his poem

For the cool outdoors


Stillness and solitude –

Sinking into stones,

The trill of cicadas


with steel-hooked face
the man bakes his muffins
for the hottest poem blooming in paris


noise and cello strings
echoing half notes into blood type B
the fancy of yalu river

Dr. Robert “Bob” Hasty is immersed in music. The Evanston resident is principal conductor of the Highland Park Strings, associate director of orchestras at Northwestern University, and music director of the Kenosha Symphony Orchestra and the Skokie Valley Symphony Orchestra, as well as a frequent guest conductor and freelance violinist and violist. He is married to singer-songwriter Christina Trullio.

Q: What was your career goal when you were growing up?

A: I wasn’t sure. I just knew I didn’t want to do music. A lot of that was because my parents were. I think I just wanted to be independent and follow my own path. My dad is a choral musician and a professionally trained singer. My mother has two degrees in music as a singer. My brother also is in choral music. I was the black sheep of the family. I went into instrumental music.

Q: How did you initially avoid going into music?

A: I was really interested in math and engineering. I went to USC (University of Southern California). Even though I was a violin major, I studied other subjects — ready to change my major at any moment.

Q: When did you begin conducting?

A: I realized who I admired most in music. It was teachers because they had families and lives and other interests. I believe the conductor inside of me was saying, “Go into teaching because you’ll get to conduct.” So I switched my major to music education and became a high school band and orchestra teacher.

Q: What do you enjoy about performing with your wife?

A: It’s something we can do together. It was the first opportunity I had to play fiddle and improvise.

Q: Do you have children?

A: My stepdaughter Emily has given us two grandkids, Sadie and Hugo. My wife and I have two others. My son Christopher goes to Indiana University and my daughter Sophie is a senior at Evanston Township High School.

Q: Do you have any pets?

A: We have a pretty old dog named Angus and we gave my daughter a cat that she named Mordechai.

Q: What’s your idea of a perfect day?

A: Riding my bike. I’m an avid bicyclist. I just finished riding the North Shore Century. Brewing beer. If there’s a USC football game on, that would be the perfect day. And, of course, spending time with my family.

Q: What’s your most prized possession?

A: My family is the greatest gift. All of the other possessions don’t mean that much to me.

Q: What current movie would you recommend?

A: “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?,” the one about Fred Rogers.

Q: What book are you reading?

A: I really enjoy books about spirituality. I’m reading “What is the Bible?” by Rob Bell.

Kobayashi Issa

Alone among the shady bushes

A girl is singing

A rice planter’s song

Masaoka Shiki

A river in summer

There’s a bridge here, but

My horse prefers water


With useless authority

The great horned owl

Sits moon-eyed in daylight


I envy the tomcat:

How easily he lets go of

Love’s pain and longing


i try to catch some wind

ending up empty handed

peter pan bus roars by


irene and susan grace

which one impresses Grayson

ask the boomer fish


lao chunyan and cao yi

they sing operas for dou yi in Jinan

a neighborly and wavely high

miami, florida,

jacksonville, georgia

people make a journey to the bayfront

talking into empty space

giving light feedback to wondrous sea


a dove may sit near

a cloud may sail low above

yet we machine ourselves with no flying assumption

but pack ourselves with yearning deman—

through night sky, via chopsticks during a meal
