just jammed out w my host dad on the guitar and he told me i can use his guitar any time to practice and wow i love life 

Today I’m making soba noodles in a Japanese village :-)
my host father in japan just came into my room and gave me these Japanese jazz CDs which means he gave me a part of his soul which means I love life and I love jazz and wow I’m ecstatic!
a piece of advice from aiko while in japan :~)

Listen to your intuition, because it is telling you something. It is telling you something very important about your destiny in life. It is guiding you towards what you need to accomplish. If you have a feeling of urgency to do something, you must forge on and accomplish it without hesitation. The more you push this intuition away, the more miserable you will become. Accomplish things with great courage, and don’t ever give up on yourself. Soon enough, you may push these intuitive feelings so far away that they will disintegrate into the earths crust and never be seen again, leaving you with an unhappy and miserable life. You must understand that you have a mission to accomplish, and that each intuitive sensation guides you towards this mission. You can accomplish anything you set your mind to. Remember this fact. Be courageous and uplift yourself. Do not be afraid of failure.
