Upcoming Events!!!!!

Don't forget that there is an amazing lecture taking place this Friday (June 27th) at 7:00 PM at the Cleveland Museum of Art.  The subject is joomchi, and the speaker is me.

Also, there are a few spaces left for the two-day joomchi workshop (June 28th & 29th)...so reserve your place before it's too late.

If you can't make the workshop this weekend sign up for my joomchi workshop at The Morgan, taking place July 19th & 20th.

If You Are Physically Able To Reserve Train Tickets In Advance For Travel On A Holiday Weekend...Maybe You Should.

The soondae was not as awesome as I remembered, but the spicy squid was great.

Michelle's new favorite pastime...being chased by the surf.

I swear, easily a third of the photos I took are of the coastline.

Amazing color...and ocean-themed iconography.

70 Degrees Does Not Qualify As A "Cold" Drink...

Martial demonstrations at the top of Namsan.  These guys do stage combat for those historical K-dramas you love so much.

 Paper wrathful deity (below) in Seoul.

...And at a temple across the street we found an entire tableaux made of paper.

At the newest contemporary museum in Seoul (...and there seem to be dozens of them...) we were able to step inside a Suh Do-Ho installation.  Enormous.

I missed out on the hanji shop recommend to me by Paper Connection, because I couldn't remember the name and of course I didn't write it down.  Nonetheless, I managed to gather quite a few cool things, including pre-printed hanji, dyed paper cording, and even a package of paper garments.

Hand Towels Are Not Bath Towels...

Pictures from Korea...

That's enough for today.  I have over 2000 to sort through, so this will continue for several days (or weeks).

The garden sprung to life while we were away.  I was thrilled to see that I have thousands of tiny indigo sprouts from the direct seeding.  Alas, no photos until I tediously weed the garden.
