Well now! Moi am happily reading a 10-page paper en Espanol even though I'm not Spanish-fluent. Porque, Toi asks? Porque el papel explores the hay(na)ku and was presented by Melisa last year at a "Congress" in Mexico. Her presentation apparently generated much interest and now an article based on that, with some of her translations of poemas from The First Hay(na)ku Anthology, will be published this month in Sincope. Melisa also expects to attend a Poets Festival in Yucatan this January and some hay(na)ku will be appear in said Festival's Memoirs.

Oh it's all good! Such blessings! That hay(na)ku is such a jetsetter while all I can do is live vicariously through its jet-settings. As 2008 nears to a close, here are the trips I've had to cancel this past year for a variety of reasons: Italy (Tuscany area), Thailand, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Japan, among others...but, Hey Hay(na)ku--You Go!
