Author Bio


My name is Caleb Hayashida. I am the author of this blog, Hostile Legacy.

A few things about me, in order of importance.

A. First and foremost I am concerned with doing all that is commanded me even as an unprofitable servant of God. I seek to bring God’s will to be done on earth just as it is in heaven. I seek the redemption of creation and the salvation of the world. This is why Jesus came to earth, and I wish to offer my services in whatever manner I can. Much has been given to me and I can only attempt to give what is required of me.

B. I love people; little children most of all. They are beautiful pictures of God’s glorious work of man, and out of their mouths ring words of innocent truth.

C. I love truth and beauty. I seek these in Theology, Philosophy, and Art.

D. I love being non-conformist, playing devils advocate, and being entirely confusing so that it’s impossible to put me in a box or categorize me.

E. I love music. I am a musician of sorts. I love to pick up instruments and teach myself to play them. I write and record music. I listen to music of all sorts: rock, blues, dubstep, gregorian chant, classical, folk, pop, church, celtic, jazz, rap, indie, and whatever else I can get my hands on. Go buy my album on amazon or itunes. Or look up my name on youtube.

F. I have an ongoing affair with tobacco. Although my interest has waned in recent months, I still smoke my faithful pipe Edera rather frequently. My relationship with the aforementioned may be summed up in a poem I wrote – My Lady Nicotene.

And that’s pretty much all there is to me. In Summary…

1) God and redemption
2) People; especially children
3) Truth
4) Unpredictable Uncategorizablility
5) Music
6) Tobacco

Well, I asked you to sign my notebook after the Summer Academy in July, and you wrote in it that I should come visit your blog. So… this is me visiting it.

You have good posts, Caleb. You’re rather sarcastic, which is awesome because I’m pretty sarcastic a lot too. *grins* You’ll find this out in class this year, I’m sure, and I’ll *try* to go easy on you and not tease you *too* much. ;)

Cheers, and I’ll see you in class!

Hello there Caleb in Connecticut, I think that nacho cheese fries are delicious!

I see you added Amazing Grace…isn’t it an awesome movie?! I want ot be like william wilberforce when i grow up…there’s still slavery in the world that people totally ignore!

And you’ll notice that he changed things throught the government. Not to say you’re wrong about people needing ot be changed, but it can work to change the government :)

So while you’re in a getting things done-ish mood… remember how you said you would take a picture of you smiling? Remember? Please? *looks up at Caleb with as sweet and little sister-ish of a face as she can come up with* ;)

It looks as if Henry is a good authority on your piano skills, I take back my earlier comments, happy? :)

Wait, you do realize D is the categorization and putting in box of your supposedly unboxable self, right?

Santeyio April 20, 2011 at 2:47 pm

yes, dear, I do.

Amy April 20, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Good. I was afraid I would have to take back my comments about rationality.

You look kind and loving in that picture, but we all know this is false advertisement. I am making a narcissistic bio for my blog. Go check it out. I am hilarious.
