My Virginia writer friend Gary Mawyer follows the Japanese news. Thanks to him, I read about the project to develop a national restoration park. See the Friends of Hawaii Trees blog for the post.
Reading the letters and cards in the folder Frank Stewart made for The Fish Catcher, I was overcome by feelings of nostalgia and loss. The letter from Jim Houston (whom I quote on the Books page) affected me strongly. What a wonderful man and writer he was. If you didn't know him, be sure to look at this page.
