Power of patient

a fortune cookie at tiday’s late lunch.

small steps like a dripping water on a tea bowl. Not to see soon to be full but never underestimate of the small or tiny drops. I am here, be patient watching to grow and hopefully pay off. And it is so rewarding when you see it actually the water in the tea bowl is full after hard working.


continue work hard.

My gratitude

Traveling back to my home in Japan. I have a very small family. just my mom and my grand aunt. Both are getting old and far away from each other. My love to my home country and my family. And yet I love USA and my studio.  I love both. I love you all. I see better when I am away. My deep gratitude to you all.

Happy Lunar Eclipse Monday! August 7, at 11:11am.

Students often ask me what should I do at the time of Eclipse or what should I supported to feel. My answer is always same, I say to them "just be mindful". No need to do anything, not worry, just show up who you are, but mindful way. However it's great time to do cleaning, clear the clutter in the closets or clean bath rooms where usually we don't pay attention. And the best time to do a self pumper, go to massage, take good care of yourself!
