It must be spring. Time to update my “About Me”. I still live in Portland, Oregon with my husband and youngest (of three) children. In addition to our two cats, who must be about 10 years old now, we have added a toy poodle to the mix. Technically, he is my grandpuppy, but as he lives with us, he is now part of the family. I don’t always write every day, but I always do some kind of writing-related activity every day, such as walking with aforementioned poodle and checking out nature, while he checks it out in his own way. Here’s a picture with Zeus and me.
I write and publish lots of haiku, a fair amount of rengay, and sometimes haibun and tanka. I actually write quite a bit of haibun, but for various reasons, haven’t gotten around to cleaning it up to the point where I am ready to submit it. Maybe sometime soon. Maybe not. I enjoy doing collaborative writing projects, including rengay, renku, and photo haiga. I hope to do more of this in the coming year.
As of the first of this year, I have added Regional Coordinator for the Oregon region of the Haiku Society of America to my list of responsibilities. I’ve created and maintain the HSA Oregon blog and Facebook page. I’m looking forward to a good year!
