Children of a Neverending Summer


The children of a neverending summer jumping off a stepladder into the ocean. As adults, life can come at us hard. Children remind us to live in the present moment. They clearly define mindfulness by the way they live. Beautiful Haleiwa, Hawaii with my friend Mike who added comments on the moment. We reminisced when we were children. We could relate on how these children felt, not wanting the moment to end, playing until the last drop of sunlight.

Gratitude + Anything Is Possible


I learned gratitude from my mom. She has also encouraged me to try new things since I was a child. Anything is possible is what my mom instilled in me. I share with her and my dad every plan I have.

Here’s my mom and my baby niece at Pearl Ridge Center, Aiea, Hawaii on 8/2/2018.

You Paint My Blues Pink


You paint my blues pink.

And shelter me from my pain.

Art from your kind heart.
