Sorry mom...

preface:

so when i came to korea i came with a lot of belongings. but one of the most important things i brought was my bag of ceramics tools. my brother had gotten me this kick ass canvas bag to tote my tools around and the tools are those that i have accummulated over 15 yrs. some of them made by special people, but all of them in that bag because i especially selected each one to make the trip with me.

i thought i sent them home with my mom when she came to visit, so when i started up at hong-ik i asked her to find them for me (as she must have put them somewhere safe) and send them to me. but she told me that i never gave them to her for safe-keeping. i asked her to search again and went into a mild depression (well kinda) when they were officially "LOST."

the news:
today was the opening of eyoonshin's tableware store (one of many) and so of course i went. she has one of the artists i worked with when i first came to korea (1st year). you can check out her website (it's linked to this one). it was good to see her because i hadn't seen her for a while and it was also good to see the team of workers that i worked with while i was at her studio. but the big surprise was when she said i had left my bag of goodies at her studio! YES!!! so within the next week i'll have to make a trip down to her studio (couple of hours away) to pick those up!

apology:
Sorry mom for making you search the house for my tools and making you think that you might have misplaced them.

I almost felt your pain there... that's until you found 'em. Damn you life... where's my journal?

No, that's all good. I'm happy for you Joe.
