Remembering Jane Reichhold (1973-2016)

This is not a very sharp or well-composed picture that I took at a
Yuki Teikei Haiku Retreat at Asilomar in the early 1990s.
But it clearly shows the intensity and involvement with each other
of Jane and Werner Reichhold--when they were discussing
matters of art and aesthetics.
Since they were BOTH artists as well as writers,
they brought a great deal of background to their discussions.

At the Retreats, we never did get to know Werner that well, because he most often
preferred to walk on Asilomar Beach to attending every indoor session. . .
but we saw enough to know that he was a person serious about art!
And about literature!

We are all thankful to Jane for her service to the arts of haiku and tanka;
and we are deeply sad that she has gone from us.
