My memories of you may fade, but my feelings for you remain forever.


My memories of you may fade,
but my feelings for you remain forever.
– Positive Masters, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 9/3/2020 –

I came up with this heartwarming quote while I was writing my first full-length screenplay in the lifestyle + competition genre that took me about 30 days to complete. I really like the process of writing a screenplay, which moves much faster and is much shorter than novels. Screenplays are a blueprint for the actors and directors to execute on to make a movie. For my unpublished novels, it took me between 4 years to 8 years to complete, so I really feel happy to be able to finish writing a screenplay within a month. I can pump out a lot more stories in this type of writing form. I love writing because it stretches my imagination and it’s very therapeutic.

Stones with heartwarming messages placed under our mailboxes during these challenging times with COVID-19.

After a 5-mile run in my cozy neighborhood in Hawaii, I saw these stones with heartwarming messages placed under our mailboxes. 😃
The white stone says, “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if only one remembers to turn on the light.” “Live Love Laugh” is written on the two pink stones. The purple stone says, “love.”
Thank you to whoever or those who wrote this. It really touched me. I’m sure my neighbors loved them too.
With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

I’m so proud of my younger sister Mia who is an ER doctor during this pandemic with the Coronavirus.

I’m so proud of my younger sister Mia who is an emergency room doctor specializing in emergency healthcare for children in San Francisco, California. Mia is the middle child in my family, with me as the oldest and my sister Lara, a civil engineer in Honolulu, Hawaii, as the youngest. Since Mia was in elementary school, she said she was going to grow up to be a doctor. From back then, I had a strong feeling she was going to achieve her dream. My sister is also an amazing mother of three little girls, a great soccer player who played college ball at Loyola Marymount University, and a fantastic example of determination as shown by her ability to undergo so many years of learning that includes years of specialty training beyond her medical doctorate degree from the John A. Burns School of Medicine at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. In this recent picture, Mia is wearing light blue scrubs, fourth from the right with some of her colleagues, all of whom I’m proud of as well.

Every time I watch the news on television and see the healthcare workers helping patients, I get emotional. I start to cry when I see patients and healthcare workers die from the Coronavirus. Despite the danger, doctors, nurses, and other medical workers volunteer to go to the Cornavirus hot spots, and a number of them have come out of retirement to help where they’re needed or at their local medical centers. Like the world has been saying day in and day out, our healthcare workers are truly our heroes. We entered this world with these heroes by our side, and we’ll leave this world with them by our side. To all of you serving in the healthcare sector, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

This is a new series at +positive masters+, showcasing people making a positive impact on others. I’m starting close with my sister Mia.
