California Dreaming

Hi.

such beauty.

I’m now in sunny Southern California.

 

If you’ve been following me, you’ll realize I was on a plane for three 10-hour-long trips within a week. o_O

I spent a few days in Australia, came back home to Seoul for a day, and then flew for another 10 hours to the Golden State. The Fourth of July weekend was spent with some incredible women, most of whom I met for the very first time, as we celebrated a woman I’ve known for almost my entire life. Now the last few days have been spent in the City of Angels, as I catch up with other family and friends whom I love.

 

Thus far, I think I’ve had the conversation explaining why I left journalism at least ten times. I expect to repeat myself many times more.

 

However, I’ve also conversed with a man who wants to start a wave of Korean-American history awareness, an architect who has the success anyone would crave but chooses not to claim it, a tour guide who failed to achieve his dream of architecture but made art his muse, an ardent supporter of North Korea’s first privately funded university, a deputy director for the Ready for Hillary PAC and of course, the most loving and loyal friends I’ve ever had.

 

These conversations haven’t shaped a future path for me just yet. Right now, they’re pushing and expanding and opening my heart so that I can begin to grasp how big this world is and the hearts of you who support me in this state of uncertainty.

  1. I hope you find your future path…and one that resonates with your core desires…something with which you can find true fulfillment. I’ve recently decide to pursue happiness as a writer, hence why I finally started blogging for real…as far as careers go…there is yet the perfect one for me…(except of course to write and then author many books) so I wish you the best of successes in your journey.. 🙂

    • Thank you for your encouragement and thoughtfulness. It’s good to know others are trying to find the right path, even if it seems counterintuitive! Best of luck to you.
