I now have 70 practices for my inner peace and happiness.


I now have 70 practices for my inner peace and happiness. One is listening to music, especially Electronic Dance Music or EDM, and yes, I dance by myself!!! I once got caught dancing by myself in my office by a staffer from another office when I was a young politician. Lol!!! Let’s go boys and girls!!!!!!!

Turkey Jook From My Mom


Yesterday, my mom dropped off turkey jook (turkey and rice soup) at my home. I’m super grateful for the thoughtfulness of my mom. I love her! Today, my energy is low, and I’m feeling mentally down even though I received good news early this morning on one of my projects, got a nice email from a new friend and potential business partner, and glad for a couple of decisions I made on two stocks. Yet, I feel down. Strange how we can have these mixed emotions. Thus, my mom’s soup really gave me some comfort today. I will attempt to do some work tonight to lift my spirit! May peace be with you, and cheers to all of your moms for all they do for you!

Construction Law


My cousin-in-law Christine Ogawa Karamatsu (she has a career in law, health, and government affairs) saw on social media that I’m working on projects involving construction, so she brought her construction law book at our family Thanksgiving dinner at my parents’ house in Pearl City, Hawaii. I have so much love and gratitude for her thoughtfulness. Happy Thanksgiving!

My Lawyer Friends


With my friends and lawyer colleagues of my past: Tricia Nakamatsu and Allen Yadao at Highway Inn in Kaka’ako, Honolulu, Hawaii for lunch on November 22, 2017. Allen and I have many moments of laughter. Tricia has the kindest soul and her writing style has influenced me greatly. I’m thankful to have them in my life! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones!!!

It Understands Me


My laptop listens.

I spill my thoughts and feelings.

It understands me.
