empty bowl.

this story is about a bowl.

I've been reading this book called Everyday Sacred which was recommended by a friend. As you can get the idea from the title of the book, it's about thoughts on everyday life, thoughts on simple but important things.

The purpose of writing the book by the author in an image of an empty bowl made me realize that the same thing applies to our life as well.

We often times try to decide what we are looking for when we begin something in life, however, what happens often times is that we find what we were looking for along the way. Even if we decide what it is that we are looking for in the beginning, it might not be it what we find at the end of the journey.

We don't need to figure out everything in order to begin something. We will get to know what it is when the time comes and "I" need to stop wasting my energy for nothing.

good night.



I'm feeling blue tonight and wanted to express how I feel through a video clip I took with my new camera D90.

two days in paris.

a couple
I watched a film called Two Days in Paris over the weekend. It made me to think a lot about relationships and love. Here's a copy of Marion's interesting narration towards to the end of the film.

-----

It always fascinated me how people go from loving you madly to nothing at all, nothing. It hurts so much. When I feel someone is going to leave me, I have a tendency to break up first before I get to hear the whole thing.

Here it is. One more, one less. Another wasted love story. I really love this one. When I think that its over, that I'll never see him again like this... well yes, I'll bump into him, we'll meet our new boyfriend and girlfriend, act as if we had never been together, then we'll slowly think of each other less and less until we forget each other completely.

Almost. Always the same for me. Break up, break down. Drunk up, fool around. Meet one guy, then another, fuck around. Forget the one and only. Then after a few months of total emptiness start again to look for true love, desperately look everywhere and after two years of loneliness meet a new love and swear it is the one, until that one is gone as well.

There's a moment in life where you can't recover any more from another break-up. And even if this person bugs you sixty percent of the time, well you still can't live without him. And even if he wakes you up every day by sneezing right in your face, well you love his sneezes more than anyone else's kisses.

moi

moi by bill

I went out for dinner with Betsy and Bill last night. The newly found restaurant Salad Dude in Shinsa became Betsy's favorite one in Seoul.

Bill brought his new toy, Mamiya. It was bigger and heavier than I thought but it was as fun as I thought it was gonna be.

This photo is taken by Bill with his Mamiya. In general, I don't like portrait photos of myself as I'm not a photogenic person or can't get a comfortable/ relaxed expression in front of camera. However, I don't mind this photo of myself. In fact, I kind of like this photo with the reason that I get to see myself with an expression I never see in other photos - other photos that were taken when I knew I was being photographed.

This photo once reminded me again what I see in front of mirror isn't exactly what other people see of me. I guess I rather look serious sometimes.

autumn leaves.

autumnness.

The days got colder and autumn leaves started piling up on the ground. The winter doesn't seem so far away. Time goes on, things change, but the spring will come again.

we will never be here again.

let's waste time.

I took a long walk this evening. The night was falling over the lake and everything was disappearing into the darkness. I, myself, will also be disappeared into the nothingness someday, just like everything else that has a life. The day hasn't come yet and I'll do my best to make another beautiful day - to love and to be loved.

The Gods envy us. They envy us because we're mortal, because any moment may be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we're doomed. You will never be more lovely than you are now. We will never be here again. - Movie 'Troy'
