Crazy Goals


When you share the goals you’re working on and people think you’re crazy, you’re either really crazy or about to make history. There’s only one way to find out, you have to do it.

How many more sunsets do we have left?


How many more sunsets do we have left?

If we could count them, we would change the way we see today, and truly understand how lucky we are to be in every moment.

I would wake up with a smile and love you even more, attack my passionate goals, and always make an effort to experience new things.

Of all the things in the world, my time with you would be the most important.

I would do this every day until the orange glow tells me that I must say goodbye.

At that point, I would hug you so I can cherish every second until my last breath as I fade away into the darkness.

(My uncle Neil Akimoto inspired me to write this who is in a coma after a stroke caused internal bleeding in his brain on June 14, 2017 that is getting worse.)

Girl Power!


“My love, you’re riding me so hard.”

“Whatever you do, I can do better,” she replied.

I laughed. “That’s why I love you.”

Girls, you already face more than us boys such as inequality, the pain of bearing children, and a higher risk of being abused or sexually assaulted. So go hard and beat us guys in anything: school, skills, network, business, and whatever you choose. Plus, you don’t need to take our last names – we just want your love.

We All Get Lonely Sometimes


We all get lonely sometimes. Whether you’re brokenhearted, on your own, a single parent, or trying to make a dollar out of 15 cents, we’re experiencing the same quiet nights together. Sure it may be dark but when we look out at the black sky, those stars keep twinkling at us and that moon keeps giving us light as if they are all telling us, “Everything will be alright.”

The light is so much brighter when we’re in the dark.


The light is so much brighter when we’re in the dark. For it is darkness that makes us appreciate the light. – Jon Riki Karamatsu, 2/20/2017 –

Make A Law Alive Through The Arts


IMG_20170511_011847_931

When you pass a law as a politician, people will say you did it for votes.

When you argue the law as a lawyer, they will say you did it to win.

But when you make a law alive through the arts, people will see it is from your heart.

Imaginary World


It becomes real when we make our imaginary world something others can feel.
