Host Lisa Allen Ortiz travels to La Honda to talk to David LeCount about his 45 year haiku habit, living with nature and how he met his teacher, James Hackett. Ortiz also presses the mute button for the second half of the field interview— ah, but the episode is saved by Farnaz Fatemi who comes by the hive to read haiku by Hackett and LeCount. All are delighted and amazed by such being that haiku inspires. Listen to 90.7 KAZU at 8pm on Sunday, January 26th or visit here on Tuesday to get the podcast.
