To read NATURE HERE IS HALF JAPANESE is to accompany the author on her perambulations in natural settings noticing the changes though the year. Concurrently, an empathetic reader may find it parallels in her book to ones hopefully long lived life including ones inevitable aging. If there’s an unwritten message in her book it’s to celebrate the seasons while you are here. You could go for a ginko, i.e. a walk in natural setting too. If it’s raining or too cold to be outside; a mall could be the place for your walkabout. Wherever you are, look around and celebrate especially the small things. It could be by writing a haiku. Poets often carry notebooks to pencil in ideas that occur to them when they walk. As Michael Dylan Welch points out in the Welcome Section of Baker’s book, the specific subjects of Winona Baker’s observations are most often things seen in British Columbia’s Pacific Northwest area. Her fondness for the southeast region of Vancouver Island, where she has lived for many years, shows up clearly in the haiku and senryu in NATURE HERE IS HALF JAPANESE, her seventh book.
