I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.

  1. So beautiful! Hope you are doing well, Genie! I love your writings even though I don’t respond to every one.

    I started working for Good Feet again May 1st but they are only paying half of my contract price, even though I am doing sooo much more work than before. Oh well, at least I’m doing something productive. My contract price is just temporarily discounted thru May….supposedly….we’ll see.

    Thank you,

    Grace Imamura
