Who Cares If I Die?


Falling from the sky

into the depths of darkness.

Who cares if I die.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Haiku Poem #189, 11/6/2018 –

First, we all have problems, death of loved ones, attacks from our opposition and haters, legal woes, financial hardship, broken relationships, bad working environment, and such. To put things in perspective, there are children who are dying because there’s no drinking water. Our problems are tough but we can make it through them.

Second, most people don’t care whether we’re alive or dead. The only ones who do are our loved ones and haters. Avoid the haters and focus on our loved ones.

Third, practice things that counters our anxiety and depression such as but not limited to getting enough sleep, gratitude, exercise, eating well, getting sunlight, going to our happy places, appreciating nature, being around positive people, listening to happy music, writing our hearts out, helping another, meditation, lighting a nice smelling candle or wearing an uplifting scent, having a nice hot or cold shower or bath, working on our passions, and updating our vision board and life plans. I have much more practices that I will share with you in the near future after I finish editing my second novel.

I’m in emotional pain right now so I feel you if you’re going through anxiety or depression. I’ve been through these lows before so I know I can get through them. As mentioned above, I have a long list of practices that I execute to get myself back to my happier levels. I’m with you on your comeback. Sending you my love.

With Warmest Aloha, Jon

Romanticize Life


My future me smiled.

More to do before you’re dead.

Romanticize life.

Go Within and Build


Go within and build.

People and things won’t fill us up.

Explore and create.

Make A Law Alive Through The Arts


IMG_20170511_011847_931

When you pass a law as a politician, people will say you did it for votes.

When you argue the law as a lawyer, they will say you did it to win.

But when you make a law alive through the arts, people will see it is from your heart.

Multiple projects and issues are jumping around in my head.


Multiple projects and issues are jumping around in my head while calls and messages keep coming in. So much so that I made an error the other day on one of my tasks. Studies have shown that multi-tasking reduces our performance. It’s much better to focus on one task at a time to maximize our output and results.

With all the different projects and goals that I have to accomplish, I think my mind is going as fast as this song “Alone” by Marshmello.
