아름다운 이 세상

"I will go back to heaven, if the cloud gestures while I am playing with the evening glow at the foot of mountain."

I wrote about a famous Korean poem, "Return to Heaven" (귀천, 歸天) previously.

Our teacher told us the wife of the poet actually owned a teahouse by the name of '귀천' in Insadong. I found the place hidden somewhere in one of the small alleys in Insadong. It is a small and humble teahouse lacking the lavish furnishing of up-market cafes, but yet, I think it is beautiful. Beautiful because it reminds me of the poem which convinced me that this world is indeed beautiful.
