STAY PROACTIVE

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE P... WHAT DOES IT MEAN
TO BE PROACTIVE?
BEING PROACTIVE means taking responsibility for MY life and actions rather than just watching how things happen. Being proactive takes time, since I have to consider MY options, weigh alternatives and make MY own decisions in order to achieve MY goals that include respect and consideration of family and community.

The adjectives I want to be known for in pursuing proactivity is - kind, courageous and physically, mentally & spiritually balanced.

CHRISTMAS TIME OF YEAR

スレッド
WISHING YOU HOLIDAY SMILES... WISHING YOU HOLIDAY SMILES!!
THAT CAN INSPIRE A NEW YEAR!
Cousin Connie was in Virginia Mason Hospital and she was surrounded with her family - hand to hand and heart to heart! - until she passed this week.

Two years ago, I was sitting at this same desk as we were surrounded by family and friends saying our last goodbyes!

It keeps my heart warm as these thoughts of “time for family” become cemented as part of the season as it gets dark at 3:30pm.

The room is brimming with Christmas paper, red ribbons and presents for next week. I’m smiling as I fortify my body with a cup of tea and Vitalized Immunity of 16 oranges bubbling up in my drink; along with Christmas Hungarian Beigli walnut cookies that Bea and I made last week.

I’m making a list to get grocery ingredients for Butternut squash soup and Tiramisu so we can STAY WARM and enjoy time with friends and relatives.

IDEAS? - LIKE "MIZU" OR WATER

GOOD ADVICE FOR MY NEW LI... GOOD ADVICE FOR MY NEW LIFE!
The credit for these ideas go first to Ike Ikeda and his philosophical principles. Second, to Sam Goto who illustrated these principles in his comic strips. It helps to think of how we as humans are not only made up of at least 70% water, but have power like water with our actions.

The first cell suggest we "go with the flow" and I like labeling the wave as "family" in the ocean of humanity.

We have carved a life here in America like the Grand Canyon.

As individual stones, our ideas and choices have shaped us and the legacy that we leave.

It's a comic strip, ending with Sam's focus and observation of the beauty of our humanness. I like being left with a smile!

WE LIVED HERE

"LIVE A LIFE A LITTLE BIGGE... "LIVE A LIFE A LITTLE
BIGGER THAN YOURSELF"
-John Kasick
The “loud voice” is becoming a constant medium between physical violence and passive aggressiveness? I will work to live openly, responsibly and truthfully with dignity & respect for all, even those with whom I disagree.

There was an evening at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center on October 23, 2019, for the presentation of the book WE LIVED HERE - interviews of 20 diverse heritage individuals who live and lived in Seattle’s Central area. Madeline Crowley collected stories from her own neighbors and it was published by Chin Music Press.

As the over 70 of us sat to hear the presentation by Madeline and her facilitator, someone sitting in front of me on the left seating area, who was black, kept interrupting with the repeated comment about “appropriations” that were used inappropriately by Madeline, a white person, in publishing the stories.

The meeting was hijacked and orchestrated because the interrupter was echoed by someone sitting in the right section of chairs on the other side of the room. The interrupters were seated in the front areas and clearly took the role of “victimization”, stating, “Madeline, you are not the first one or the only one collecting our stories. You took grants that could have been used by people who are already collecting stories.”

The disrupters emphasized that a “white person” was telling the black people’s story and that was not acceptable. William Lowe, one of the black story tellers in Madeline’s book, stood up to defend Madeline and clarified the fact that the stories were transcriptions of his own words and only collected by Madeline, saying, “I was born and raised in this Central Area and had a comfortable relationship with all the ethic groups, including whites. I am comfortable with who I am.”

My first thought was to wrinkle my forehead and wonder,”Why am I being hijacked of my Japanese Heritage being part of the Central District?” I’m at times disappointed when white people tell our story, but mostly I’m irritated that we are not telling enough of our own stories. Therefore, at least these stories are being collected and there are times when others tell it better. We need both.

As I discuss the evening, a friend’s take is, “We have a long way to go.” I disagree. It’s here and now and always has been. The black person took it upon herself to attack Madeline with “racist comments” because she can. She lives in a free country and has a right to be a “victim” who speaks out and takes it upon herself to victimize others. But it was uncomfortable, uninspiring and I did not sleep well.

As a colored person myself, I choose not to stay away from these episodes. I will stay emotionally non-reactive, be a positive leader, get plenty of healthy sleep and continue to live freely.
