We always find new hobbies, and we even actively seek them out when things are starting to become “meh~”. But hiking, going out in the great outdoors, and travelling is sure to be a hobby that I will have for a very long time to come. I always stop and savor that feeling of gratefulness for the opportunities that I get to see as much as I can (or as much as my resources would let me). When we reached the peak of Mt. Bukhansan was definitely one of the moments when I felt that gratefulness wash over me. In great waves.
When do you feel that you are freest? When do you feel like all burdens or ill thoughts are simply taken away from you by some other unseen force, leaving you so lightweight and… and free? I can probably name a few instances. One of them is being in the cradle of nature, when I am walking up a mountain path, up to the moment that I am standing somewhere high, far above everything (or almost everything) else. Well, that’s exactly how I felt on that day I went on a hike up Bukhansan, or Bukhan Mountain, in Seoul, South Korea.
I’m at the end of my blog series about BenCab Museum, and it is to talk about the art museum itself. Now I am not an artsy person. One of my frustrations is to be able to draw something that is recognizable for what it is. Then I recognized a lost cause for what it is, and gave up (yeah, there are some things that we have to concede on). But that does not mean we stop appreciating, and “appreciate” is what I did during this visit.
It’s July, y’all! First half of the year is over, and the second half has begun. Time did fly so fast, didn’t it? The next thing you know, it’s Christmas. But that won’t be for a few months yet, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves, shall we? To welcome the 2nd half of the year, let’s go local, to a place that’s really close, but I’ve never been to before. The BenCab Museum.
Now won’t it be interesting to have this course or subject? “Accounting for Fandom”. It may even deserve its own line-item on financial statements, something along the lines of “Travel Expenses – Fandom” or (let’s just go straight to it) “Assets – Fandom”. Wait, you know what’s coming next, right? Yes. “Liabilities – Fandom”.
