추색 (秋色)

还是庆幸当年敢于远走他乡,秋天在记忆中才有了颜色。

탁 트인 하늘

There is difference between pleasure and happiness. Pleasure requires 'stimulation' whereas happiness arises from 'ínhibition'. Less is definitely more. A city needs a wide open and quiet space for worn-out soul to recover and heal.

인생은 원래 그런거다

"Do you have any regret?"
This one question sent me looking back at my life for an answer.

If I have regrets, I will have stories to tell but I am not telling.
'Regret' is an unnecessary burden. Whatever I have done and not done and the subsequent outcome of my actions are nothing more complicated than a result of my passage through life.  

Life is not perfect but that does not mean we have to live with 'regrets'. No, I have no regret but I don't mind hearing yours.

꽃 피는 날

Who doesn't like walking in a garden with beautiful blooms? 너Tube has abundant of videos which take viewers to some of the world most beautiful gardens. No background music, no narration and no cinematic editing, just plain walk-around videos. But seeing is never the same as feeling. There is always a need to establish an emotional connection to a place before we can say how we feel about it. Perhaps on one fine day when the flowers bloom, I can visit Kenkenhof.

파란하늘

The sky has a beautiful blue hue when movement of people was restricted during lock-down. These days, the blue sky has taken on a grayish tone as human activities return. Sky is like a canvas, no subject looks nice without a beautiful canvas. The day of beautiful sky blue may return if all internal combustion vehicles are eventually replaced by electric one.

케이크인지 빵인지


If it looks like a bread but tastes like a cake, it is a bread I never knew. I thought I bought a bread but I got a brioche. Due to my error, I discovered more about it. It is a bread of French origin enriched with egg and butter. Brioche is pronounced as 'bree-yosh'. Learning and reading are good habits but a bit of mistake, from time to time, can also help us discover more of our world and ourselves in a rather unexpected and amusing way.
