Getting harder
Saturday, January 21, 2012 2:57:26 AM

The links are getting harder to write. So many directions to take, so many voices to do. The number of choices is daunting. I also felt that I was repeating myself using the color green. I couldn't ...

A Reflection
Monday, July 04, 2011 6:29:48 PM

I will always think of Albert as a kind of Japanese American Renaissance man. He was different, "out there," flippant, opinionated, and gruff. Let's just say, he took no prisoners. And ...

Long Story Short
Thursday, June 30, 2011 4:51:54 PM

I was recently asked to do a taping with Leslie Wilcox--a segment on her program "Long Story Short." Vewy scawee (as my niece's baby daughter says). I was given instructions on what ...

Reading Never Let me Go by Ishiguro.
Monday, November 01, 2010 3:36:55 PM

Dear friends, Am reading Never Let me Go by Ishiguro. Can't say I like it. It is different. Took a while to know what was going on. I guess it unfolds for the reader in the same way and time it ...

Christmas Break!
Friday, December 18, 2009 4:25:50 AM

Besides buying Bamboo Ridge Press books for your Christmas presents for friends and family members here and far away (far away is good, to give them the nostalgic, pining-for-Hawai'i moments), I thought ...
