  • NIKKEI MEMORIES | 日系メモリーズ: This painting was created in the Minidoka incarceration camp in 1944 by a Seattle Issei identified on the back only as Inouye or the initials “SI.” The painting was sold to the donor’s mother, who was working at a Seattle welfare office at the time. Many Issei were refused government assistance after the camps closed, and the artist had resorted to selling his paintings at the office to get some money. This object is a symbol of the spirit of gaman the Issei embodied in camp as well as what they suffered after the camps had closed. 
日系メモリーズ 
ある一つの綺麗な花の絵画。ですが、とても特別な意味を持っています。それはこの絵が、ミニドカ強制収容所にいた一世の人によって1944年に描かれた為です。裏には「イノウエ」及びイニシャルのSIと署名してありました。この絵は、寄付して下さった方のお母様が購入したもの。当時、彼女はシアトルの社会福祉事務所に勤めていいたそうです。多くの一世は、戦後に強制収容所から戻った後も、行政による支援を絶たれていました。この絵を描いた芸術家は、生活費を稼ぐため、絵画を事務所に保管・販売していたそうです。ここに描かれた花は、一世が強制収容所で経験した「我慢」の精神、強制収容所から戻った後の苦労のシンボルと言えます。

  • 10 PIECE 
10 clips for #throwbackthursday 
From when my #focus was purely #movement. Exploring my #body #balance and #ability. 🧘🏽‍♂️ #flow was (still is) everything — this is #rooftop (ish) and it was like 50 degrees, but refreshing. Not quite #yoga but sorta 🤷🏽‍♂️
.
.
.
.
My takeaway watching this was/is 
When I do me, I win. When I try to fit in and do like others I lose. I’ve tried to work at places and “conform,” but truly I have to be my #self. I’ve tried to be in relationships and conform, but I have to be #myself — I’ve tried to copy or model others #success and have been #successful however — I wasn’t really happy per say. I guess my lesson is I have to be on my Mickey blue eyes J to the A Y HOFFA (reference for those who know me) #ididitmyway // or as my late great grandfather would say “you live your live, I live my life” .

  • If you want to start a business and become successful with it, you need to solve meaningful problems. Execution is everything in business.

  • Last month I hired @asia.dore  to take photographs for Loyalsmith. They are lovely and I’ll start sprinkling them in here and there along with some personal anecdotes...because anyone who really knows me knows I like to tell stories.  In this image you can see my Mother earrings, and you can also see my tiniest tattoo which is on the back of my neck.  In 1996 my dearest friend Sarah was moving from Seattle to Burlington, VT.  The night before she left there were three of us friends helping her to pack.  After much drinking it was decided we all needed to get the same tattoo to remember this time in our lives and the impact friend Sarah had had on all of us.  Stay tuned to find out what the tattoo is of! #handmade #handmadejewelry #columbiacity #seattle #neophyte #earrings #mother #jewelry #tattoo #oldtattoo #friends #dearfriends photo credit @asia.dore

  • Rain you are in my blood, you are in my tears, you save me from the fire within. I still open my mouth on a rainy day to let you in and it still makes me laugh like I did as a kid. Rain you are my friend!

  • 🚨New Thai Restaurant🚨This cute authentic Thai restaurant offers an unlimited variety of dishes that calls for multiple visits! My small stomach can only fathom so much food! .
.
We ordered the crispy pork and Chinese bbq dish and the Thai boat noodles. Both were very strong in flavor and pretty authentic to me! I truly felt like I was back in Bangkok except it’s not as humid and hot 😂 .

Thanks @eatwithjlau for accompanying me to this new restaurant! I’m sure your first visit here was the best right 😊

So, because of finals the next few weeks I’ll have to start posting my first post at like 7am my time, sorry about that, it’s just easier for me since i don’t always get service in school. Anyways, new theme! I really fell in love with this filter and HAD to use it immediately so I may or may not have deleted all my premades from the other theme. Oops?
