“Sometimes when our situation changes we change the way we treat people who’ve been there for us since day one...”
Don’t let money, fame, popularity or status change the way you see those who’ve loved you all your life.
LOVE playing mashups especially to some of my favorite tunes and I’m currently working through this one arranged by my latest obsession & inspiration- a young Italian wizard (#costantinocarrara) whose arrangements are really made for bigger hands but are great for practice & incredibly fun to play!🤪😝🤩#meandmypiano #musicforlife #pianopractice #fingerexercise #imaginedragonsbeliever #pinkwhataboutus #pianomashup #thisismytherapy #gratefulformusic

As many people know, my mother- Master Bow Sim Mark- has long retired. Together, she and my father built the CWRI martial arts school for nearly 40years and it has become our family’s history of ‘Coming to America’. The legacy my parents left behind still holds strong today due to the relentless support of many long-time dedicated students like Sifu Jean Lukitsh who has remained in Boston to continue Master Mark’s profound teachings to future generations. Let’s keep the CWRI/BowSimMarkTaiChiArtsAssociation spirit & lineage alive!!🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩 For more info, visit us at Bow Sim Mark Tai Chi Arts Association & www.TaiChiArts.com.
The Boston Voyager website interviewed BSMTCAA instructor Jean Lukitsh for an article about the Chinatown school.
It was an honor to meet Tess Gerritsen— an amazing soul & an incredible inspiration to #AsianAmericanWomen of all generations. Tess is an international best-selling novelist whose book series inspired the hit American TV show Rizzoli & Isles.
In book #9, THE SILENT GIRL, Tess created a powerful character named Iris Fang— a mysterious female martial arts master from #bostonchinatown ... and this lead heroine just happens to be based on my mother, Bow Sim Mark!
#THESILENTGIRL i...s a riveting page-turner and once you start you won’t want to put it down. Trust me. Go get your copy now!

"Looking back, I should have been more vigilant and could have done more to protect the women who were placed in a vulnerable situation.”
Ah the South China Morning Post, last bastion of bull shit expat privilege....despite multiple accusations against him and his own comments in the original inte...rview and featured in the Hollywood Reporter and Variety where he basically claims ' that its only sexual assault on a woman if you look like Harvey Weinstein' and the 'industry made me do it's, 'my position of power allowed me to think it acceptable ' (ah what power and isn't that an admission of what you did, that you're claiming you didn't do' and the ultimate disgusting 'it's what I tried to do, as opposed to what I actually did!'
E.g.: I tried to do something to you, but I didn't succeed so that makes it ok
The SCMP plays the oh look he's an expat and he's now playingthe victim card as if he was the one that has been abused, and he kinda says he is sorry and that maybe some of it happened but that's enough of an apology right?
Damn you SCMP did you not read the accusations, instead you play the 'well a white man says this, and a non white person says something else and we'll believe the white man...bad joss Taipan
Let's see more of the story break and more allegations of abuse be revealed and what they say then
Yeeeeessss!!!! It's about #%&$ing time!!!
