Hanako's Dreams
Published by ERIC KIMURA | Tuesday, September 13, 2011 8:38 AM
Hanako means “Flower Child”. Upon entering school at 5, my mother was given the name “Hilda” a name of German origin meaning “battle” or “battle maiden”. This was the general practice of the territorial education system to help assimilate the children of the Issei. The house burning occurred during one of the plantation strikes in the early 1920's. This reflects both the "small kid time" and "growing old" themes. 203 words.

Marissa and Me
Published by CHRISKK | Monday, September 19, 2011 8:06 PM
Maybe there’s a better way to look at this. Marissa is social, she’s inclusive, she wants to make contact, she’d like to get to know me better, she’s nervous and vocalizes instead of falling silent or biting her nails.

Buried Quarter
Published by ERIC KIMURA | Tuesday, August 02, 2011 7:03 AM
This one is a BR 100 story entry under the theme “the lonely one” and has 490 words. The story, as originally told to me, caught my ear because of how a small, seemingly insignificant but symbolic act can tip the balance in a person's life. I also do believe, that there is something in this land that draws people back.
