A big cynical timing 最高に皮肉なタイミング

A big cynical timing 最高に皮肉なタイミング

I am emotional, upset, unsure, panicky, and I cry here and there with my friends and colleagues, but I have been working on this big project for the last 5 years and it is almost ready, a very ironic timing ever. I have been wanting to help mastectomy post-operation patients with a special blouse, called Relaxip. I will be running a fundraising campaign in October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to lower the price of the product to serve more patients. Stay tuned! But how it came to this timing is so ironic and cynical. I cannot laugh about this how bizarre it is.

Cancer, Hats, and "To Live"  癌と帽子と「生きる」

Cancer, Hats, and "To Live" 癌と帽子と「生きる」

I am really excited that my hats are on a musical stage, "Ikiru" in Tokyo, Japan since October 8, 2018, until October 28.  This made-in-Japan musical is called "To Live," (or "Ikiru," in Japanese) and it is based on the Akira Kurosawa's same title movie from 1952.  It really means a lot to me to be a part of that movie story.
