Colors of Our Dreams


We see what they don’t.

Apparitions filling in.

Colors of our dreams.

It’s fine to be you


Make-up to hide you.

Posing for your photo shoot.

It’s fine to be you.

Sunset with my niece and mom in San Diego, California


My mom, niece, and I at our Airbnb in San Diego, California on 10/16/2018. We are enveloped by the warm glow of the sunset.

Having some sunlight a day helps us produce Vitamin D, which assists us in having strong bones and prevents cancer. It also helps us better our mood, combatting depression since studies have shown a correlation with Vitamin D deficiency and depression. Just don’t overdo it, which can harm your skin.

So enjoy some time in the sun to get Vitamin D. I enjoy going to the beach to swim and watching sunsets. Take care.

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

We Watch Over You


We don’t breathe or eat.

We can’t even fall asleep.

We watch over you.

Are You Art or Real?


Are you art or real?

My friend brought you to see me.

Your eyes follow me.

Design a Ghost Friend


Design a ghost friend.

Make it feel, care, and so real.

Artificial thrill.
