Work Anywhere


Technology has made working anywhere possible! I love my @apple Macbook Pro, my R2D2, an extension of me. It’s been with me since November 16, 2013. My buddy has been with me through the ups and downs, but we’ll keep moving forward everyday.

Here’s a shot of my workplace while I stayed with my sister and her family in the Bay Area, California.

Pain is my Power


Kick my broken bones.

When they heal, I will return.

Pain is my power.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Haiku Poem No. 216, 12/31/2018 –

When you get taken down, take that negative energy to power your comeback. Rebuild, have empathy for your opposition, and keep providing value for others. Positivity will always rise.

Live So I Can Live


All that’s left of me.

Words I wrote when I could breathe.

Live so I can live.

Floating Between Time


Years go by. You grow.

I’m fading further away.

Floating between time.

Dragons & Tigers


The world of imagination is where the magic lives. My niece and I create worlds where dragons and tigers make friends with different life forms and collect different powers to protect the universe from the darkness that exist among all beings and creatures. The lessons in our make-believe realms can play a huge role in our daily reality, even our life’s purpose. Here, we’re playing at a playground.

Solitude Heals Me


Solitude heals me.

Free from the system’s shackles.

Far from darkened hearts.

Execute My Dreams


My mind keeps moving.

What seems unreal can be real.

Execute my dreams.
