#127- POWERHOUSE = ME :)

During this L.A. Fashion Market Week, I had fun, as always.

*POWERHOUSE*

On the 15th at the fashion show at California Market Center (CMC), I had a chance to chat with my friends (Kimberly and Erika). Most of my work time, I am always alone, so it was fun for an hour with my friends.

Kimberly and Erika’s client exhibited at the Focus show at CMC. I can’t write details about it in this blog, because my article is not on the paper (Senken-newspaper) yet, but I can say, they (http://www.pureconsultinginfo.com/index.php) always have wonderful clients.

By the way, when Barbara (who is a co-owner of D&A show at New Mart) introduced me to her clients at D&A, she said to them, “Yoko is a POWERHOUSE!”. ha ha ha…! Thanks to Barbara!

#126- Write with love

Recently I have been writing a novel and avoiding socialize (sorry, my friends!), so I have been spending time with myself a lot.

But, the other day, I had a lovely lunch with a Japanese married couple (the husband is a former TV Asahi chief of Los Angeles bureau / I used to work for him as a journalist) from Japan.

I usually have meals with them while they are here on their vacation in Los Angeles since they left Los Angeles 10 years ago.

When I see them and have conversation, I always feel beautiful love between husband and wife from them and feel happy.

They told me that they don’t fight each other. I can see why…because they respect each other and enjoy each other’s difference. What a nice couple. I am very happy to see and feel this beautiful love.

There are also a lot of love, love, and love in my novel. I can’t wait to open my book to people and give my love to readers.

Have a wonderful everyday to you all!
Love,
Yoko
