As you all know CDHK started in October 2012 and it's still alive and kicking. It's really my pleasure to be your host, notwithstanding my busy life as a father, grandfather, oncology-nurse and haiku-poet (and author of two novels).
Sometimes time is not at my side and that gives sometimes delay of posts, but ... well ... I can do a lot, but magic I don't possess.
I am always happy as I read all of your comments and compliments. Mostly positive, but sometimes criticizing, but that's no problem as you all know (I hope). I do understand your critics and I respect that.
Over all you are all positive and great family-members. Family? Are we a family? I think we are a family, not by bloodlines, but by our shared love for haiku (and other Japanese poetry-forms) and that makes me a happy host (and maybe ... your "haiku-family-patriarch").
As I wrote in one of my last posts at CDHK, we have a new month coming up with modern kigo (seasonwords) for summer based on Jane Reichhold's "A Dictionary of Haiku" (a modern Saijiki). Jane is one of the most wellknown haiku-poetesses of modern times and maybe ... one of our haiku-family-members will become that famous once. I hope for someone that will become reality.
