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

Happy Mother’s Day to my mom and two younger sisters!


Happy Mother’s Day to my mom and two younger sisters! I love them so much. My mom taught me love, compassion, empathy, and gratitude, all the fundamentals of life. My sisters are amazing moms for their young children. I’m super lucky!

Every single mom, whether they’re with us physically or in spirit means so much. Often times, they bring balance to our lives and world because they truly want the best for us. They want to see us happy. Sending my love to all you moms out there!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

The children in our lives can inspire us to continue being curious and have that excited desire to learn.


Howzit! What’s up! I love this moment with my #niece on February 16, 2019 at Salt Our Kaka’ako @saltourkakaako in Honolulu, Hawaii. Everyday, #children #learn exponentially with their desire to find out what they don’t understand. They have an immense amount of #curiosity . The children in our lives can inspire us to continue being #curious and have that excited #desire to learn.

Stay curious my friends! Sending positive energy to you!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

“I’m Racing Against Time” – Racing Against Time Part IX


You elevated me with this high.

Break open another special moment.

I hold my heart. It’s thumping. I’m still alive.

How many thumps do I have left before I die?

Back at my computer, I download my mind.

I have to keep going. I’m racing against time.

I have more to do, more to share.

My joy, my pain, how much I care.

Detach the anger, detach the hate.

If we all have love, we can determine our world’s fate.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Poem, 4/3/2019 –

I took this picture in Waikele, Hawaii on 2/19/19.
