what is life about, anyway?

maybe this ladybug

knows the answer

I'm A.L.Kimura, local artist, writer, yogi, volunteer, engineer from Richland, WA.


When I first started this list in 2016 I gave myself the arbitrary commitment of writing to my list every Sunday morning.

Yeah, I'm not sure who I thought I was kidding.

Writing, for me, adheres to no schedule. So I am letting go of that.

To quote a friend, this list is "anything but regular."

If I don't have anything to say, I don't write.

When I do feel the call to write, I write what's on my heart and what's happening around me; yoga, art, creativity, prison, nature.


Sometimes serious, sometimes strange, always real.


Thanks for witnessing.
