8 long months ago, the city of Seoul was a gigantic question mark floating in the barren void just in front of me. I was ready to go and at the same time, never more unsure about what would happen next in my life.
This short musing is to make a proper salute to a city who completely blew away my absent expectations and the wonderful people I met there whose generosities I could never even begin repay. Despite not having any intention of searching for family, I literally fell into the arms of folks who made Seoul feel like not only much more than a place to live, but home – and that’s no small feat.
So, thank you to all my sisters and brothers, friends, and inanimate objects that shaped my world. I’ll be back.
