If you’ve read Disney inspired haiku, you know the June Featured Blogger of the Month – J.B. Conway. He is also known as the Mouse of Zen or MOZ. J.B. has 13 years in law enforcement, wants to be a Disney Travel agent and currently manages several social media accounts. J.B.’s interest for Disney is a huge part of his life.
His first memory of visiting Disney was losing his Mickey Ears in the toilet when he was only three years old. Although he wanted to keep that hat, his parents insisted he throw it away. J.B. was heartbroken. Now he saves everything from his Disney trips – photos, souvenirs, park guide maps, etc. Hopefully he won’t become a hoarder after this traumatic event! J.B.’s Disney haiku is another way to save Disney memories, or actually create them. He has his own blog and book both named Mouse Of Zen, where he shares his poetry for readers to enjoy.
My first reaction when asked if I would be interested in reviewing a book for my blog contribution was it couldn’t have come at a worse time. My wife was already on my case for spending too much time on my Disney obsession, also I just started working on a project, and I’m preparing to begin a brand new job. I didn’t think there was any way I could find the time to read and review a book. Then I found out it was a poetry book and the only poetry I know are in the lyrics in rock ’n’ roll music. So, I did a little bit of research on the author and it was that research that made me change my mind. What I found was someone whose every word has substantive meaning. I found someone who has a love for his family, humanity, and Disney. Someone we all would and should be honored to know.
