I wrote this poem long time ago–1999. My Dad, friends and myself made a small beautiful handmade book called “Pieces of Moon” which I sold at the Amerasia bookstore in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles California. “Pieces of Moon” sold out!

For the past few weeks–insomnia has returned. My dog Toto injured himself and I’m up many hours of the night trying to comfort him. It’s so sad to see my little guy in pain. I hope he heals but he is an elder — I think 17 years a rescue so I really don’t know how old.

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.
