When Robert K. and his sister were children, they went cherry blossom-viewing in the park. Robert was so poor growing up, that the only brother-sister date he could afford for his sister was to the park. No shopping dates, no cinema dates. Just cherry blossom-gazing.
Robert’s sister didn’t mind that they were poor in the pocket. They were already rich. Even as the cherry blossoms faded and the siblings went their separate ways, they never forgot about the cherry blossoms-dates that they had growing up.
Robert became a businessman and his sister became a buddhist nun. But each of them have one they in common: even if the petals of the cherry tree fall and all of the money in the world fades away; money isn’t the real thing that makes one rich. It’s knowing the true things in life that make you rich.
In Doris Dörrie essays, the writer explains that rich people are poor when they are greedy,bitter and resentful. Rich people are truly rich when they are kind, open-hearted and giving. Even if they are penniless.
Being rich takes time and a lot of hard work, practice;kindness and heart.
Go for broke!

I’ve got that song from a cartoon back in the 90s. It’s become a favorite of mine to sing on someone’s birthday. It’s the next birthday song. I decided to use it as part of the story. I’ve written 217 pages in over nine years. My first novel. I get to re-edit my ‘first’ novel!
So far for a live action remake of Sanami matoh’s Fake, there’s no word yet if Sanami-Sensei’s gonna give a thumbs-up to a remake of her graphic novel. Dee ripping Ryo’s clothes off and setting the bedroom aflame; there’s a fight between G vs E about same-sex marriage. Of which, New York and Delaware have already given its blessing to gay marriage. North Carolina’s next in line to open-arms to gay & lesbian couples. My friend Sharon G. is inviting me to her wedding soon. I saw gay weddings on television before. This is the first gay wedding of my friend. Sharon’s planning to wed her roommate/girlfriend when North Carolina gives its blessing.
Boxing Day was on Dec. 26 when I wrote this ‘piece’. It was about Anglo-refugees coming to America for a better life. Three days to go ’till 2012. Happy New Year!
I wonder “if” Anderson Cooper was born and raised in Great Britain? I asked that after I met a young English mom and her two kids. Their names are ‘Emily’ and ‘Anderson’. Since its Boxing Day in the UK/Canada, I believe that English lady is looking for me on Facebook. And that Anderson Cooper is really an ‘Englishman’. Most Anglo-Americans like milkshakes and sodas instead of tea at 4 o’clock in the afternoon. I’m beginning to see a lot of English refugees showing up in America. I might see more “Anglo-themed” friendship shops(Stores); maybe a “Tea-Pub” next to a “Starbucks” in 2012.
Charlotte is called ‘The Queen City’. And the British are here to stay!
I recently sent in an essay to Barack Obama about what would $40 USD would do for the economy. I’m sure he’ll answer back.
Russia has told Prime Minster Vladimir Putin for over 12 years. After a ridged election, the Russians have the final straw. They now took to the cyber media and the streets, and made it clear: ‘Make like Micheal Jackson and beat it.’
It has been 12 years since we’ve seen Vladimir Putin strutting his rock hard shirtless abs on vacation. As well as Mother Russia. But the Putin era has come to the end of the road. The world knows it, the Russians know it; and Vladimir just can’t get it through his thick-skull. He’s so full of himself. It would be a dream come true if the Russian nation would break into Putin’s mansion, pull him out bed and throw him out the window on his head.
Prime Minster, you are through! Russia wants new blood. You’ve run out of luck, out of gas and out of time. Dude, you belong at McDonald’s.
Get your gear and your walking shoes and get the steppin’.
