My name is Julia Guzmán and I live in Córdoba; Argentina. My husband and I are lovers of the Japanese culture and both of us are haiku writers. Both of us gave a lecture -he´s studying Santoka ( his was on Santoka´s life and haiku) and I´m investigating and translating into Spanish Chiyo-ni´s haiku (my lecture was on Chiyo-ni´s life and haiku) two years ago and this year we particpated with our haiga (our own haiku and photgraphs) by the Japanese Embassy in Argentina. Besides this, I´m collaborating with my translations into Spanish with a Haiku magazine published in Spain. I´m telling you all this just to ask your permission to translate into Spanish some of the haiku you published in English and Japanese in your newsletter. My idea is to submit them to the Spanish Haiku Magazine – “Hojas en La Acera” – in case they are interested in publishing them in the new issue.
I´m also studying sumi-é with a Japanese sensei whom a admire and respect.
Unfortunatelly I don´t speak or read Japanese.
Thanks for your attention and
Have a Happy New Year!.
ten mo chi mo
nashi tada yuki no
No sky and no ground- Ni cielo ni tierra
only the snowflakes that sólo los copos de nieve
fall without ceasing que caen sin cesar

Dear Ms. Julia Guzman,
Nice to hear from you again. I am glad to hear that your husband and you have been writing haiku so long.
Santoka and Chiyo-ni are still popular in Japan. And haiga is attractive too.
Besides, it is my great pleasure that you translate some of the haiku in my newsletter into Spanish. And I hope that they will appear in the Spanish Haiku magazine.
I also hope that you will enjoy drawing sumi-e.
A Happy New Year 2014!
