Made by one of my students. The guasali is a native flower to Guam and so when expressing your love for someone in floral form this Valentine’s Day consider using a native flower such as this one to do it.

I so miss the flowers.

Guam is the best sunsets in my opinion, but here is one from Rota which isn’t all that bad.

Agreed, that Guam definitely has the best sunsets but the CNMI comes darn close…

I was honored to help organize this dance in contemporary Chamorro dance at UOG. We thought only a few students would show up but so far the response has been incredible and the class has already started meeting. Biba Chamorro! Biba Chamorro Studies!

A Chamorro farmer and his karabao outside of Sumay, antes di gera.

In France, too, they refer to “before the war”, “after the war” or “between the wars”. But there are no karabao!

I bought this for my mom and stepdad in 2004 when I first moved out to the states from Guam. It has been on the refrigerator of their house every since.

Priceless. Funny how I picked up on a bunch of food words whilst on Guam for such a short time. I guess working in a restaurant helped…

Kamyo sin bangko. Using a kamyo without a bench.

I really could have used one of these in Hawai’i last week; an ice cream scooper is NOT effective!

I’ll be working on this mural for the next month in Umatac. If you are interested in joining the contact info is on the flyer.

If I were still on island, I’d lend what measly artistic “talents” I have to this awesome effort…

I feel afraid every time Fox News mentions Guam.

I am glad I didn’t have to process this. Thanks, Sumahi!

Tools made by my grandfather and me. On display at the Lunar Calendar Festival at the Guam Fishermen’s Co-op.

My knife with the carabao horn handle will always be my favorite…

Tragedy spans islands...

It’s hard to imagine this amount of violence on island, but it’s harder to imagine what the victims’ families are going through. Peace to all on island and on the islands of Japan.
