Sorry mom...


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!

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.
