my Friend SeungGyun, 서산 CC Chungcheongdo Korea Jul 31 2009

Again and still, I was his guest in my home country even..

When I was participating a company meeting in London early year 2000 or late 1999, he was a military liaison officer at the Korean Embassy in London and he hosted me for the travel to city of York by train. A year later or before when I was in Copenhagen for company meeting, he and his wife hosted my wife couple of days for the city tour in London.
As high school alumni, we have been getting together almost every critical moment in life to seek some solutions, to share some agonies or simply to talk.. mostly somewhere in the mountain top after hiking, at the bar, at lousy but tasteful traditional restaurant, in the train or playing golf this time.

Thank you my friend, thank you.. as always.. And let me say, please by my guest next time, please!! :-)

巨人高斌 My good friend Gowind 고빈 and his casual but gorgeous Photo Show, Salon de Factory Hongik Univ Ave Seoul Korea Jul 29 2009

He was hitchhiking at the border of Pakistan and Afghanistan for his journey to the land of war-torn country of Afghanistan when I was struggling in despair to escape from the deadly reality.

He was on his horseback running fast in the midst of Tayga(Тайга 타이가) forest in the frigid part of Northern Mongolia when I was being suffocated almost to death with the ridiculous relationships among the business people at stake.

He was watching the stars.. tremendous number of stars in the night at the high mountain range of more than 5,000 meters high in the land of Tibet. He might be crying of joy fascinated by the glory of the heavenly cosmos when I was seeking a place to hide away from my people of any relationship...

I met him again here in my hometown. I met this giant man with a serene smile in here my place of mixed memories of bitter and joy. This generous great man shared me with the set of stories of his adventures episode by episode and I, recovered from my fatal inner trap, felt more relieved.. actually I felt like walking with him somewhere in the unknown world of heavenly beauties.. also with his good family of animals of donkies, turtles, dogs and cats... and goats and monkeys as well.. elephants too..

For his beautiful photos it's more than worthy to try .

空間又音樂 My new cozy corner.., Salon de Factory Hongik Univ Ave. Seoul Korea Jul 26 2009

The music in here is so soft and touching that I feel my heart, which has been callous so long, gets mellower and mellower.. and my mind re-starts opening its door bit more to the world outside..

Magical & synergistic combination of the spatial layout and the set of music gives sort of 'high' in spirit & soul as well as physical comforts..

at the Open Space, 서교예술실험센터 Art Experiment Center Hongik Univ Ave. Seoul Korea Jul 26 2009

What a luck to find this suave place in the back alley of the university avenue just by chance.. for taking some rest and getting truly energized!! Government funded and operated professionally by one of the renowned art associations, the art center has been providing a good place of art whatever experimental for people living in town.

And I was really moved by warm welcoming by the lady who is a member of the current exhibition. :-)
