MyKu Hachi with foreword by John B

Super excited to release Spirit of Japan MyKu Hachi- the August installment of Tanya Richey’s art and poetry collection from her time in Japan

MyKu Hachi Cover

The cover feature’s Kobo Daishi and you’ll find Shinto gradian foxes and get lit up by the Fuji Fire Festival.

Remember that your support of her legacy helps me donate copies of the books and distribute her art to people who need inspiration and a break from their pain.  Sometimes you just are not up to reading a novel or doing a puzzle and we’ve found that these little books create pockets and

space and moments of piece from the turmoil that surround.

Buy for yourself, give as a gift, cut one into pieces and decorate a room.



Tanya’s Last Happy Hour

June 11th 5-7 pm we will celebrate Tanya’s unbridled life by crashing Monday Happy Hour at Brock’s on Sophia Street. Home for minute or stay for hours, have a drink or a full dinner, just say hello to a friend or meet someone new… stop by and say Prost to Tanya as a farewell from Fredericksburg.
Tanya’s creative soul moved on to her next adventure on June 2nd but her spirit continues to nourish and inspire through her art. Tanya’s final wish was that her legacy be carried forward by selling and distributing her art and MyKu books sharing her work with patients and families working through Congestive Heart Failure recover and chemo-therapy.
Books are available online through Amazon and directly through me (her daughter April). If you would like to purchase 5 books or more or gift books to a hospital or support agency please contact me for special pricing.
