Exercise and Ocean Therapy Reduces Stress and Anxiety


Here’s a picture from my short 2.77 mile run along the coast of Ko’olina on 5/15/2017. After my run, I swam the length of Lagoon 4 six times. Exercise and being in and near the ocean is helpful in alleviating stress and anxiety. I’m grateful to live in Hawaii.

Make It Better


After undergoing four rough days from a flu, I was happy to get back to work even though my energy was still low. While drafting a document at Starbucks in Pearl City, Oahu, Hawaii, I overheard this song “Make It Better” by Hazel English in their speakers as I was ordering my beverage. I like the catchy beat and mellow tune.

The following are the lyrics:

I want to be seen
Yet I want to be invisible
I want everything
Yet I want nothing at all

All of these thoughts I have
Negate each other
I keep trying to understand
How to make it better
But I can’t make it better

I am confident
Yet I always seem to doubt myself
I am intelligent
Yet I know nothing at all

All of these thoughts I have
Negate each other
I keep trying to understand
How to make it better
But I can’t make it better

I want to be seen
Yet I want to be invisible
I want everything
Yet I want nothing at all

All of these thoughts I have
Negate each other
I keep trying to understand
How to make it better
But I can’t make it better
All of these thoughts I have
Negate each other
I keep trying to understand
How to make it better
But I can’t make it better

How Super Can I Become?


Trembling without love.

How super can I become?

Losses become wins.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, 2/23/2017, Haiku #54 –

Here’s a songĀ “Forever in Silence” by Solstis that helped to bring out my emotionsĀ and words to this Haiku poem, which I was able to write in seconds.
