This is Patricia J. Machmiller, all togged out in ivories the day we met Dr. Akito Arima
in San Francisco. Patricia has been a guiding inspiration and very hard worker
on behalf of the Yuki Teikei Haiku Society since Day One in 1975.
She has been President and held many of our other offices and has been very involved
in many of our publications--like the Saijiki mentioned below--
and most of our meetings and special events.
She often sports a hat, being sensitive to the sun.
We have just learned that she is home recuperating after an appendectomy!
You can send your wishes for a speedy recovery in the comment section
below and she will see them.
