haiku by Buson translated by Mark Brooks
haiga by Kuniharu Shimizu from haijinx II:1
updated March 2012
Dear readers and contributors,
The latest issue of haijinx started running into delays early in the process. The contents were not finalized until several months after the original release date of last June’s solstice.
After that, delays on the backend with production continued to mount through last autumn. Mark, our only web person, took time away for his own family needs and that left haijinx stalled during the winter.
We just learned in February that Mark and his family will be relocating to Corvallis, Oregon, in April. This would further delay the issue to the point where it would be one year later than originally planned.
This is too much to ask of contributors and staff, so we are cancelling this planned issue of haijinx. After Mark settles in Oregon, the haijinx site will be re-imagined into something less hectic and time consuming.
Please accept our apologies for these delays and this cancellation. If you have submissions with haijinx, please consider them released at this time. Thanks to all who contributed and have been patient with this slow moving progress.
Mark, Alan & Carmen
