When you asked me what hope is… Then I answered, “Hope is my home. Hope is my soul. I don’t live to hope. I live inside it. I am hope.”

The first snow
is falling in Borimsa,
a quiet temple
at the foot of Gaji Mountain,
as we stand near the two stone pagodas
that silently standing side by side.
“Oh, the first snow!
And I’m here with you…,” you said.
I smile.
Because I remember all you’ve said about the Korean saying…
.
The first snow
is falling in Borimsa,
as the true love starts blooming
in two hearts.
.
Inside the temple,
the Buddha’s statue
is waiting for two hearts
to pray in quiet words,
and send the love song
through the gentle wind
to the eternity.

.
2. In Korea, there is a saying that if you are out in the first falling snow of the year with someone you like, then true love will blossom between you.

“I’ve been searching for ways
to ease my pain,
heal all wounds,
free from suffering,
enlighten my own soul,
and to reveal my own mystery.
I’ve traveled the world
for searching the answers.
Now I’ve found that
a way to ease my pain,
heal the wounds,
and free from suffering
is to forgive;
with the true forgiveness.
The true forgiveness
will give me peace
and the peace
will enlighten my soul,
and reveal the mystery…

“We are books. Most people will judge us on our covers.
Some people will read us just to kill their time, not to understand the content.
Some people will read us until the end of page, but then throw us away; to be forgotten in the dusty box.
Only few people will keep us as treasure, appreciate every character every word every story, and love us with their souls with no time limit.

I travel the world not to see
how beautiful a place is,
but to feed my soul.
Every step I make,
Every place I visit,
It will always be
the journey of my soul.
.
In every journey of my soul,
I learn how to learn.
.
And in every journey of my life,
I collect moments, not things…

THAT NIGHT, AT ANDONG STATION

I was waiting for
the last train to my home,
But it never came.
The night was cold,
Even though the winter had not come yet.
No one there.
Nothing there,
But the cold tracks
And the silent platform.
The air refused to speak to me,
Even to say “sshh” through the wind.
I was completely alone.
.
I wished you had been there
standing before me
and warmed my heart
with the fire of your love.
So, I could throw the handful of tears into that fire
And let go away all the sadness.
.
But I was completely alone.
No one there.
Nothing there,
But the cold tracks
And the silent platform.
And the air also refused to speak to me,
Even to say “sshh” through the wind…

“Bagaimana seseorang bisa selalu merasa asing dan kosong dirumahnya sendiri?
Maka, ia pun selalu tak sabar menunggu waktu untuk kembali terbang menuju bintangnya di luar sana.
Bintang yang selalu membuat hidupnya terasa penuh akan makna…” .
