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

Inside You’re Crying


Holding another.

Secure your nets, flaunt your wins.

Inside you’re crying.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Haiku Poem #202, 11/23/2018 –

Everything is not always as it seems. Especially in this time of widespread use of social media. It’s okay to be vulnerable. I feel you.

Happy Baby!


My baby niece has a pleasant personality. Hopefully her happy genetics will compound over time and become super when she incorporates positive living practices as she grows older. She’s an inspiring and lovable little girl.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving! I have so much gratitude for my family. Their love and support has a huge impact on me. I’m able to keep moving forward because of them. Here’s a picture of my family at MW on 11/16/2018 for my mom’s birthday and Legoland and California in October 2018.

I’m extremely thankful for the opportunity to be alive. The odds of each of us being born is about 1 in 400 trillion. We’re super lucky to have a shot at life!

Wishing more happiness and peace in your life!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon
