    3.06: A Grateful Goodbye

    3.06: A Grateful Goodbye

    Dear Listener,

    It is with a heavy heart that I publish this episode. As you can probably guess from the episode title this will be the last episode of The Haiku Pond. I've decided to extend my hiatus indefinitely, but I wanted to leave you with a final episode to say goodbye and thank you. This podcast grew into something much larger than I expected and I'm very grateful for that. As I explained in this final episode my priorities and energies are currently pointed in other directions—which makes producing episodes difficult.

    In this final episode, the theme is Gratitude (an old favorite) and features a recent haiku I wrote while traveling last month and, of course, some reflections from me. For show notes visit https://anthonynanfito.com/2023/01/22/a-grateful-goodbye/

    All of the previous episodes of The Haiku Pond will remain up on the various platforms so you can listen to them at your leisure. If you’re interested in keeping in touch, you can always find the most up-to-date information on my personal website at anthonynanfito.com.

    Sincerely, 

    Anthony Nanfito
