For a moment, after meeting with an old friend/mentor on Saturday for lunch, my mind was filled with hope and ideas and dreams. Coming home, I went crashing down, sleeping, do little work, […]

Letting Go of the Past

Letting Go Without a Choice When I came to Korea all these years, there was one decision I had to make, a choice that was little under my control. At that time, I was financially treading water but not good enough to travel at will. The reason to travel wasn’t really strong enough as well. […]

All Things Are Temporary

I’m reminded that are all things are not forever. They can go long. Quite long. But all things do come to an end. It’s good and bad. I guess that’s why I’ve heard NBA coaches like Dwane Casey say, “Never get too high and never too low.” Keep it level. I’ve been tested for the […]
