Publications or Ponderings
The Alma Haus Press is about seeking knowledge and then pondering upon what has been learned. When we feel passionate about a subject we will research it more, or just let our passion out on the page. We do present others' work here, with permission. Please take a look around, we're rather sparse right now, but we're adding often. Certainly, we hope you enjoy your visit.
6 August 2017 ~ Hiroshima Day, It's time to plea for Peace & Friendship every where, especially the East & West. We should be able to work together to make this a better world. Presented here is one small publication that my colleague and friend, Chigusa Otsuka created with me:.
We distributed, by hand, about 200 copies in green letter size paper, at the Japanese Memorial Park in downtown Portland, Oregon along the northern edge of Waterfront Park on the occasion of the Hiroshima & Nakasaki rememberence held by local peace promoters to commemorate the the atomic bombs being dropped. We represented the East & West.
