 NISEI VETERANS MEMORIAL CENTER ANNOUNCES “An Afternoon with the Author” series  

The Nisei Veterans Memorial Center is proud to announce its “An Afternoon with the Author” series. The series will be conducted monthly via ZOOM conferencing, kicking off on Saturday, July 18 at 1:30 P.M. with award winning author Julie Checkoway who wrote “The Three Year Swim Club”

NVMC’s “An Afternoon With The Author” will invite published fiction and non-fiction writers from around Hawaii and the mainland into our homes. By means of ZOOM, the Center will host a different author each month to talk about their work, the story behind the story, and their personal journey on the way to having their work published.Chosen because of its tie to the Japanese-American and local experience, each author’s work connects individuals with larger truths and ideas about society.  After all, everything that happens in the world can be written and learned from literature which through the centuries has shaped civilizations, changed political systems, exposed injustice and observed the human condition. Literature is the foundation of humanity’s cultures, beliefs, and traditions.

 About “The Three Year Swim Club”:

This story revolves around school teacher Soichi Sakamoto, who took a group of Japanese-American children from a Maui sugar plantation and taught them how to be champion swimmers, practicing in one of the plantation’s fetid irrigation ditches. If the basis for the book doesn’t sound amazing enough, how the story unfolds—Japan vying for the Olympic games, Pearl Harbor being bombed, WWII changing the world forever—allows the story and characters to evolve in uplifting and heartbreaking ways. Checkoway is equal to the task of telling this moving narrative. Her top-notch skill as a researcher allows her to bring to life the long-forgotten saga of the swim team, which she fears might otherwise “simply disappear.” Depicting determination, discrimination, hope, anguish, hard work, and hard choices, Checkoway has created a sports history that is singular in its own right, and a fitting testament to the over 200 youths who swam for many reasons toward one goal: “Olympics First! Olympics Always.

blue so blue the singing waters
the waves that crash on shore
clear so clear the pure streams destination
rushing its home once more

the cleansing power and energy
and mana that we feel
as we celebrate the sea
and what magic it can bring

the whales who swim so deep
across the continent to breed
the dolphins who come and play
and turtles who rest on landc
and hatch their eggs on the sand

blue so blue the islands oceans
see it’s majesty
and honor the joy and beauty
that these waters bring

let’s protect these waters
as a choice and our very breath
for the waters of the oceans
need our help and deep respect

blue so blue the singing waters
the oceans waves that crash on shore
clear so clear the pure streams destination
rushing to be born once more

a bow of gratitude
a smile from the soul
the invisible circle of Spirits stirrings
from the unknown to what is known

these subtle reminders
that life does bring
to silently walk with us
with a compass to our awakenings

a bow of gratitude
to the times we recognize
our fellow travelers
on this path of life

and a smile of light
from Gods Eyes
that leads us to see
the grace of a rainbow
and a higher reality

and we can recognize
that smiles true source
beyond a language
it’s from our source

and we can honor
a bow with a bow
for we are all part
of that same energy exchange
in the dreamer dream of now

Choosing a Positive outlook

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-y3j36-e22c7f

Choosing a Positive outlook.

A talk and meditation on choosing not to be oeverwhelmed bu life and choosing to see the good in life

life is not happening to you
it is happening for you
can’t you see

is life positive or negative
it up to you choose
what you want to believe
and how you want to feel

every day you awaken
you might change your perspective and see
so many wonderful blessings are given
with so manes new opportunities

life is not happening to you
life is happening for you
just try to see

life is a gift you’ve been given
life is a chance to be free

you are not a victim
although it may be hard
make that big decision
to not feel angry
and on your guard

take another look
and embrace the beauty you see
life is really good
and it’s up to you to be

not a victim of what’s happened
but a strong soul
that takes responsibility

you have this power
you’ve been given
so celebrate what’s right in life

focus on the good you see
and let your smile shine bright

life is not happening to you
but for you
can’t you see
you can choose whether to believe
if the glass is half full
or if it is half empty

Achieving Independence

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-sptgs-e21695

the fireworks will dance

to the eclipse of the full moon
and this country has a chance
to heal it’s deep wounds
by accepting we are one
all equal in Gods truth
 
we are so in need of healing
so in need of hope
our life and the heart of humanity
all trying just to cope
 
A talk with Affirmations and Meditaiton on achieving Independance
and the rockets red glare
show our flag is still there
it’s torn and so worn
and in need of some real repair
 
as we look up to the sky
we pray to have the courage inside
and the power to unite and not divide
for I believe this country can decide
to remember the reasons why
our founding fathers created this country
with the statement which we still recite
all men are created equal
 
and with that truth in our minds
I wish you Happy 4th of July
 
Blessings
