Hello again, Curtis!
I've had such a beautiful day, because you kindly answered my comment.
And I've just found that you and Dennis Chibi are friends on Facebook.
This morning Dennis sent me an e-mail to me through Facebook service, saying that he visited Akita,Japan and met me that time when we had World Haiku meeting at the Institute of Minnesota Akita Campus.
He suggested to me that we should be friends on Facebook,and after that I found his page, recognizing you in his friend list.
It has made my day so beautiful.
Nice coincidence!
Please say hello to Dennis from you too.
Thanks a lot.

Love it, Dennis. Your haibun made me smile. Kids are so funny. When my oldest was 3 and I was pregnant with his younger brother, he told me "Momma, you wook wike a one-humped camel." I will never forget that!

A wonderful haibun, Collin. My kids are currently four and six and an endless source of such inspiration too. Who knew that having kids could be so entertaining?
