It is paradoxical that we need to sit down in order to go somewhere far fast. Be it if we take a train between states or a flight across countries, we sit for the duration of it. If we tried to run or swim there, it would be tiring and/or dangerous. Our safest bet is to stay put, while also moving rapidly.

Hello Folks:

It's good to be back to our regularly-scheduled blogging here, every two weeks to the T. Just in time for me to point out that I likely won't be posting in two weeks as I will be in London visiting a dear friend not seen for far too long!

One of the frequent questions I get regarding teaching and living in South Korea is about food choices. I wasn’t super familiar with Korean cuisine before I moved to Korea and I was very pleasantly surprised to find that when I came home, I missed it terribly, and still do.

Good Day All!

In other words: It's official. NYE2017 will be spent in Sweden! A friend, Katherine, will be with me! (A good thing, as I'd rather not go solo but such happens too.)
