You don’t know, you don’t know, know.
Your eyes glow in the dark, they glow.
You got friends all around, around.
It’s just you and me, you and me are going down.
Baby if you follow me home, I’ll follow you forever.
If you’re not going out in the cold, I’ll wait for better weather.
If you’re tired of walking alone, I’ll walk with you and watch the sky.
No matter where you are, no matter where you are, I wanna hear your footsteps in the night.

With my friend and mentor Honolulu Prosecuting Attorney Keith M. Kaneshiro at his fundraiser at Bishop Museum on the evening of October 19, 2016.
Jodo Shu Hawaii Bazaar today, October 16, 2016 at 1429 Makiki Street, Honolulu, Hawaii from 8:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. Clothes, products, and food.
It’s better to be loved than hated. A common saying, but a good reminder for our daily practice in our interactions with others.
Will you feel
the sparks after the sunset
and stay close
to see the fire burn?
Will you stay
and wrap your arms around me?
to see the fire burn.
“Sparks After The Sunset” by Cosmic Gate and Sarah Lynn, and remixed by Rafael Frost.

Cute as a bunny.
You run circles around them.
Even a tiger.

Anything to win.
In time, they will choke on words
that were painted white.
-Haiku #29, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 10/10/2016-
Burst through their fire.
Relentlessly pursuit it.
They can only watch.
-Haiku #28, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 10/9/2016-
I can be your light.
Escape the lower 6 realms.
Just hold onto me.

Stretch is such a kind and loyal member of our family. My dad got him as a little puppy in 2001. He was recently diagnosed with cancer, but fortunately, his walk and appetite has gotten better, and my mom said he even barked recently. When I dog-sat him just about month and a half ago, he ran out of the gate and down the street, which forced me to take him for a walk. I think he knew that that moment was the last time he would be able to run like that. I love him so much.
Curls under blankets.
Follows me from room to room.
Cute tilted head stares.
