How far would you go for the one you love?


How far would you go for the one you love?

We can do a lot when we’re single because we can push ourselves to the limits until our body and mind needs to sleep. Being on our own, we have a great amount of control of our direction and momentum. However, being alone can be lonely at times.

A relationship with a significant other can either boost us or slow us down. It can make us happier or more miserable. 😊πŸ˜ͺ

When you fall in love, how far are you willing to go? How much are you willing to sacrifice? When things aren’t going right, do you follow your gut feelings, and if so, to what extent? β€πŸ’”

By the way, I love Game of Thrones!!! β„πŸΊπŸ²πŸ”₯

Come with me. Let’s get away. We can go where we’re normal.


We can be strange.

A little deranged.

All caused by our magic.

Come with me.

Let’s get away.

We can go where we’re normal.

I find comfort in the dark.


I find comfort in the dark.

When it’s still, that’s when she comes.

We don’t speak, yet we talk.

I play a song for her.

In the middle of my room, we dance.

Everything I do. It’s for the future you.


Everything I do.

It’s for the future you.

They say, “It won’t count.”

Well, it’s not for them with all of their doubts.

I’ll make sure it’ll be there for you, high in the clouds.

Hawaii Buddhist Council service at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, May 20, 2019 at Oahu, Hawaii.


This morning was beautiful at Punchbowl Cemetery or the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, May 20, 2019 at Oahu, Hawaii. The Hawaii Buddhist Council, in which I’m a member of had a service for all the veterans. My late great uncle Roy Okubo was a member of the 522nd Artillery and 442nd Regimental Combat Team during World War II.

I cherish my time with my family. I dedicate my Sundays to be with them.


I cherish my time with my family. I dedicate my Sundays to be with them. My family and I in Hawaii enjoy video calling my sister and her family on the U.S. mainland.

Here’s a collage of photos with my niece and I on April 10, 2019.

Have fun with your family!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

You said, “Friends are forever.”


You said, “Friends are forever.”

“Lovers never last.”

Now where are we?

We’ve faded into a blurry past.
