If you can fully embrace the unpredictability of your death, you will truly live in the present and appreciate every moment before you now. - +positive masters+, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 1/20/2020 - On Thursday, January 17, 2020, my mom called my cell phone. Her voice was filled with elation and joy, "Mia got the job at Stanford University!" My younger sister Mia is a trauma care doctor, a partner of a group of medical doctors at California Pacific Medical Center at San Francisco, California. "Oh man, I'm so happy! I'm so happy for her!
