Friday updates

Great news! Carlos Colón is feeling better, back at work, and continuing to promote short poems via The Electronic Poetry Network. I received this from Carlos:

Howdy, folks. Just so, you'll know, I am feeling much better. Been back at work for a couple of weeks now. For those of you who don't know, I had fever for over a month, and the doctors could not figure out why, although they figured it was bacteria in my bad right lung. I also had a touch of pneumonia, and, of course, was really sick because the mystery illness caused me to miss HNA in Ottawa.

Continued good health to you, Carlos! So nice to hear that you're feeling better.

On October 11 Tom will be presenting photos of his trip to India last April where he met Angelee Deodhar at Rochester Area Haiku Group.

Tom is waiting to hear from the Virgilio Haiku Association regarding a teacher's workshop he would conduct on November 14th in Camden NJ.

This just in from Deborah P Kolodji:

Naia has posted a nice write up (with photos) from our recent haiku reading and launch of the 2009 Southern California Haiku Study Group anthology, "shell gathering":
