Hi Curtis,

Yesterday I reached a big milestone in my translating of Issa, posting the ten thousandth haiku on my website.

More about it here:

*whew!* I think I deserve a drink...

A message from Simply Haiku:

Dear Friends,

Beginning with our Autumn issue we announce international non-English haiku (tanka, haiga, haibun) contests.
We feel many non-English haiku and related genres have been ignored and deserve to be shared.
Could you help us by informing us about such contests in your country or elsewhere?

Thank you very much!

Best wishes,
Sasa Vazic and Robert D. Wilson
Simply Haiku

From Anatoly Kudryavitsky:

Congratulations, David!
Issa would also be thankful, but would just say, "Why?", accept a cup of sake and walk away:) You are on your ('half') way. Grandissimo!

Very cool, David! You certainly deserve a big cold one, glass of wine, or perhaps some hot sake. Cheers!
