The Greg Brady Project

Welcome to the official Barry Williams' blog

My friends call me Barry. From time to time I also hear the name Greg. Yeah, as in Greg Brady. The Brady Bunch represents a fun time in my life. But it’s only part of the story. There’s more to say and that’s what The Greg Brady Project is all about – a place to say it. So, I’ve invited some friends to join me and share their perspectives on the Brady’s, the 70′s and just about everything else. Now, I’m inviting you…

It’s poetry day here at The Greg Brady Project. Time to sharpen our pencils and make the world a whole lot brighter by sharing some inspiring verse. The format? Why, haiku, of course. For the uninitiated, haiku is a Japanese poetic device in which three related images are described successively in three lines. In English, it is often expressed using exactly five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the last line. Here, then, are some Barry-inspired examples:

Some people think otherwise.

What a patient man.

Get the idea? Feel those creative juices flowing? Here’s another one:

just because he fits the suit.

There’s bread in those threads.

Yes, you can barely control the impulse to try one for yourself, right? Here’s another:

He grew up Brady,

a nation’s older brother.

Now, Siriusly.

Thank you, thank you. And now it’s your turn. Give us your best Barry Haiku!

    Greg is a Brady,
    and Barry is a Wiliams.
    What can all this mean?

    With looks and talent

    He is abundantly blessed,

    This groovy Brady.


    Wearing the Tiki,

    Surfing Hawaiian waves…

    Hearts leap aflutter.

    (I just couldn’t resist this one…!)
