4-month stay

my 4-month stay in japan way back in '70 gave me pause about some 'things japanese.' since then i've mulled over various aspects of haiku. it's a much more complicated philosophy than writing little poems. i've separated myself from as many of those attitudes as possible. particularly that i'm non-japanese and more positively that i'm female. it's been quite a journey.
