I Feel You In Me And Throughout.


Eat it and you come.

I feel you in me, throughout.

You press when I doubt.

Your Voice Calls My Name.


I want to love you.

The forest is dark with mist.

Your voice calls my name.

Ran my 10th Honolulu Marathon on Sunday December 11, 2017 and achieved my second best time.  I was sick but it felt good to finish the race.

Solar Energy at Aloun Farms


On the morning of December 15, 2017, I checked out the PV solar system my friend Scott Murakami built with his company for my friend Alex Sou’s Aloun Farms in Kunia, Oahu, Hawaii. Also with us was Marlon Rimando. At one point in our career, Scott, Marlon, and I were sharing a warehouse by Honolulu International airport with a couple of other businesses for each of our Internet retail companies.

My Blue Becomes Pink


The more I read you,

the stronger I feel for you.

My blue becomes pink.

Live within your happy dreams


If death is your wish,

live within your happy dreams.

Write it, then live it.

For every heartbeat, is one less second with you.


For every heartbeat,

is one less second with you.

I can’t wind my clock.
