Haiku North America – Winston Salem

I just got back from a road trip through the winding roads of West Virginia and Virginia, to get to Winston Salem, North Carolina, where I saw old friends and made new friends at the Haiku North America 2019 Conference. The highlight for me was attending a reading and discussion led by Alan Pizzarelli, Alexis Rotella, and Michael Rehling. And one of my poems was even read…(thank you, Michael Rehling!)

I always come away from a conference inspired. My excitement to share my upcoming picture book, Happy Haiku, a picture book for children, is off the charts now. Can’t wait until I have a release date from my publisher to share with you.

(This post’s quote is a nod to my women’s fiction book, Full of Grace.)

I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.  Anne Lamott



    1. Thank you so much, Mike! It’s been a whirlwind since we got home, sorry for the delayed response. Your presentation was so inspiring and moving. And our lunch with Sandi and Brent will be treasured always!!
