    Hi Gene, 8-16-11

    I liked your Old Soul Singer haiku above.
    Yep, a fellow substitute teacher friend of mine- who is also a guitarist, had his rt lower leg amputated and he is also learning to walk a second time. He too is “wrestling with angels” and I will share you poem w him. Good haiku and also thanks for your haiku in your
    hands-eyes-stars booklet

    Thanks for the free copy of your + book (which is the blue cover way over on the rt of this online page) which I picked up at the free table at the conference, and saw you left w the library at the Inn at the Queen Anne in Seattle, WA.

    Nice to have seen you at the Haiku North America Conference and at the Vietnamese delicious restaurant.
    Sorry, not enough time to chat with you two but I think I gave you one of my bright pink haiku and Laughter Yoga poetry.

    Good that your blog will keep us connected. Your weekly newspaper column, The Joy of Life is some thing I will be interested in reading. Also consider learning more about Laughter Yoga at laughteryogaamerican.com and reading the book
    Laugh for No Reason.
