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.

Take the Steps Ahead


Take the steps ahead.

Detach from the thunderstorms.

We have umbrellas.

Solitude Heals Me


Solitude heals me.

Free from the system’s shackles.

Far from darkened hearts.

San Diego Zoo


My niece and I riding the open-air bus at San Diego Zoo on 10/17/2018 in San Diego, California. My brother-in-law is behind us, my niece’s dad.

For me, I do my best to spend as much time as I can with my family. My nieces changed everything drastically because time is clearly reflected by how fast they grow up, just like my hair. 😂

Have fun with you family and friends!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

Execute My Dreams


My mind keeps moving.

What seems unreal can be real.

Execute my dreams.
