Taste of Tacoma

After a Friday night in Seattle dancing and drinking I'm awakened with the beautiful sun in Tacoma. People are saying it's hot today... but compared to Korea and even my short stay in Texas earlier this month, this isn't hot. This weather is beautiful and relaxing.
This afternoon, I'll be heading out to Point Defiance Park for the annual Taste of Tacoma.

Michael Jackson is dead

Less than an hour ago Michael Jackson was pronounced dead. In memory of him and his impact on the world of music and entertainment I dedicate this post to him.
In Memory of Michael Jackson.

What Michael Jackson song are you listening to today?

My father is originally from Texas. There are a lot of historical events in my short life that is directly/indirectly tied to the state of Texas. The historical ties makes Texas a significant place in my heart. A little part of home.

Texans would consider themselves a Texan first before they refer to themselves as American... or of being a citizen of the United States. A country in and of itself in the minds and hearts of those who were born, live and grew up in the state of Texas. Being and living in the state of Texas is like living in a parallel state of mind un-marginalized in the borders of the massive state lines. Texas, the lone star state.

I spent the past 11 days in Texas sleeping and catching up with extended family from my fathers' side of the tree [family tree].

It was nice to get away from the fast paced life in Seoul and relax in the small town of Willis, Texas North of Houston. The fresh air with vibrant blue skies radiated into my body and seemed to send the dark into retreat. Ten days of no obligation to wake up and work has refreshed my imagination and desire to do something creative in life.

In Washington for Two Days

Yesterday, a strange re-emergence back into American culture. Surrounded with an immense disproportion of space. From a concrete jungle to a sprawled out community surrounded with forests and blue skies.

It's Washington Summer. Life while on vacation is great. It's good to be home.

In conversation with my friends I keep referring to Korea as home. Usually, the place you live the longest is home. In some ways yes, Korea is my home. In another sense or another paradigm it's where I live. It's where I make my living.
