The Vast Hour All essences of sweetness from the white Warm day go up in vapor, when the dark Comes down. Ascends the tune of meadow-lark, Ascends the noon-time smell of grass, when night Takes sunlight from the world, and... Continue reading

Today is the big show. It'll be a long day, but the end is in sight. The results will be what they are, and there's not much left to be done except just do the show. Last night my student... Continue reading

What I'm listening to right now. Heilung, "Krigsgaldr." This looks like part of some weird Scandinavian neo-Paganist thing. But it is interesting. I find these "back-to-roots" European nativist movements culturally intriguing, but feel it's regrettable the way they get coopted... Continue reading

It almost makes me wish I was living in Saint Paul again. I have high hopes for Melvin Carter in the realm of Minnesota Politics. [daily log: walking, 7.5km] Continue reading

Today is "Buddhamas" (Buddha's birthday, observed, in South Korea, as a single middle-of-the-week holiday). It's a day off from work, but in the middle of such a busy period, with the talent show coming up and putting in extra hours... Continue reading

"You know, it's just not right." - Yeoeun said, looking over at me wryly and shaking her head disconsolately. She put her hands on her hips, for emphasis. She's an 8th grade girl, who was standing and looking up at... Continue reading

Blank. No poem. Not a word. Thoughts just a blur. Deracinated. A failure of symbols. Adrift in meaninglessness. An embodiment of silence. Compositionally handicapped. Continue reading

My Korean cellphone service provider, KT (Korea Telecom) likes to send me public service announcements via text message. Mostly these seem useless - though one time it warned of some flooding up in Paju, where I might, conceivably, have been... Continue reading

In principle, I really enjoy the annual talent show concept we do with the elementary-age kids at Karma English Academy. It takes me back to my own elementary years, at the "hippie" Centering School in Arcata, where for each hour... Continue reading

My 9th grade student Seunghyeon draws excellent doodles on his TEPS Test listening practice answer papers. He's no slouch at getting the right answers, either, and has a phenomenal passive vocabulary in English, certainly better than your average American native... Continue reading
