Introductions open doors to future connections. I hope you’ll enjoy the introductions I’ve made to Fire in the Treetops, the special Haiku North America twenty-fifth anniversary anthology, and A Warm Welcome, the 2013 Seabeck Haiku Getaway attendee anthology, and make a connection to both books. I have just added both of these intros to the Introductions page. The former presents the history of Haiku North America, details the book’s dedication to William J. Higginson, and outlines the structure of the collection, which includes more than one thousand poems from twenty-five years of biennial HNA conferences (I edited and published all of its anthologies). The latter introduction invites readers to welcome the sorrows and joys of every day as a means to open new places in your heart, and welcomes everyone to come to Seabeck!
