Here is a special message from Norman Darlington:
The Plenitude of Emptiness: YOUR ASSISTANCE REQUESTED
Following on the news of the very serious nature of our dear friend Hortensia Anderson's illness, we announce our intention to make available in print, The Plenitude of Emptiness: Collected Haibun by Hortensia Anderson.
This book, in accordance with Hortensia's wishes, will be edited and published by Norman Darlington and Moira Richards during 2010. It will be made available throughout the world via POD, at only the cost of printing and delivery. The book will include as many of Hortensia's published and unpublished haibun as we are able to find, and in which search we request your assistance.
Please mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org (plenitude.of.emptiness [at] gmail [dot] com) with information about any material that might add to this, a lasting tribute to the brave and gifted woman who is friend and inspiration to so many.
