winter sniffles-
I miss the Christmas poetry
and curry event

Boo hoo, an event I have been looking forward to for months, and I get a nasty cold and sneezes and sniffles.

It's hard to beat a special Winter/Christmas poetry reading event of this quality, and everyone went for a curry at the really good curry restaurant nearby, and got to talk to these two poets.

The two readers were:
Penelope Shuttle and Greta Stoddart

Yes, hope you recover soon and write a lot of kus as you do!

Oh Alan,
how you need more vitamin C? (granny advice, lol!)
Btw, a friend sent me Raku Teapot, and I'm so enjoying the haiku -- also hearing all of you reading your work!

For those who may not know about it:

Thanks little onion, roswila, and larylee for wishing me a speedy recovery.

It's still lingering, but I think what was most annoying, and I'm sure others have experienced this, is that a long anticipated event is missed because something decided to crop up at the last minute, like a bad cold.

I couldn't really spread it to others, otherwise I would have gone albeit unwisely.

It's a shame we don't follow Japan's example and wear a face mask immediately we have symptoms of a cold. It is such a thoughtful thing to do.

I'm glad you're enjoying the Raku Teapot book and CD.

It was a brilliant project and just shows what can come off a mailing list.

Sadly raku teapot discussion list has gone, but this is a great reminder of how productive it could be, and maybe one day another book and CD haiku anthology will come along to complement this one! ;-)
