Green Tea Latte from Trader Joe’s


I drank all my green tea latte that I bought from Trader Joe’s in San Mateo, California during my stay with my sister Mia and her family. I enjoyed it for my breakfasts and while I did work on my Macbook Pro! I will buy more when I’m back on the U.S. mainland.

Motivate Myself


Started my early morning of February 13, 2018 with some oatmeal with banana, green tea latte, and a motivational entrpreneurial video. My goals for this week: update the business plan for our FBO company, complete 1,800 words for a total of 70,000 words for my 2nd novel, draft performance agreement and partner agreement for a concert I have a minority interest in, write the strategy for a variance request for the development of homes for a development and construction company I’m working with, craft some policies regarding land use for an agency I’m doing volunteer work for, run 4+ miles 4x, and review latest construction repairs for Jodo Shu Hawaii.

Does My Words Touch You?


Does my words touch you

the way my thoughts make you squirm?

Close your eyes. Let’s meet.

Dozens More Bloom – Love.


Yearning dead flowers.

I picked the petals and cried.

Dozens more bloom – Love.

Our Pieces Match.


Pulled into your eyes,

I merge with your shattered soul.

Our pieces match.

Broken


I like that you’re broken, broken like me.

I like that you’re lonely, lonely like me.
