My Haibun page now includes “Change of Weather,” a very short haibun about my mother’s death this past April.
On the Photographs page, look for five new links to 2023 Seabeck Haiku Getaway photos (also added to the Haiku Northwest website). “Seabeck Haiku Getaway” on the Digressions page also includes the 2023 Seabeck group photo (and daily photo links).
