1. Grass. The grass in front of Seoul’s city hall may or may not be the only “lawn” I’ve seen in Korea. They should consider more of that. Picnics are nice. 2. The International Food Fair. For letting us eat in Afghanistan, Sudan and Bangladesh all in the same day. And Chilean wine and German … More A taste of Seoul
1. Forever21 in Seoul, for having numbered sizes (for real size people) and not “free size” for the Korean ideal sized people. 2. Glasses/contact lens shops on every corner in Korea, for when you get a tear in the middle of your contact, but you didn’t bring any extras for the weekend and you must … More MyungDong, my heart
1. A three day weekend. 2. The mighty KTX and all it’s speed. 3. The Korean boys who sat across from me and took me completely by surprise with their fluent English; one had lived in Tonga, the other in the States.
1. Letter from my bestie. The kindest letter I’ve ever received. 2. Meeting with the Vagina Videographers. I now have all files in one place. Let the compressions begin. 3. Arcades and teenage boys. For reminding me why I enjoy taking pictures in the first place.
1. Late night chats with friends on rainy days. 2. Short days at work. Because some days are just too much to take. 3. Bathing in the after-glow of the Vaginas. Getting praise and compliments from strangers.
Today I’m ever so grateful for: 1. Hummus and Macaroni and cheese (with the instructions in English and everything, whether I need them or not). 2. The person who gave them both to me. 3. The love and support of my amazing friends who not only came to the Vagina Monologues, but came with flowers. I love … More Garbanzo
The last two performances of the Vagina Monologues today. What we’ve been working for over the past two months. Climaxes here. Today. Nerves build, reaching towards the final show. Each audience with its own personality. Today I’m truly and deeply grateful for: 1. Everyone who came and supported us women, from all three performances. For … More Sunday nerves
First Vagina Monologue performance today. Anticipation in the air. Nerves getting the best of me. Excitement building. So much to be grateful for today. Far more than three things. All secret things.
1. Sunny rooftop lunch break 2. Amazing women with amazing voices singing their hearts out for other amazing women’s vaginas in honor of the Vagina Monologues. 3. Monthly birthday change-up. Earlier lunch = longer break = more time in the sun.
1. Finding a sketchy (think Texas st.), yet friendly travel company who will assist getting the Chinese visa (even if it does cost 140k won more than it did in 2007). 2. “Beautiful Korea. Wonderful Immigration.” For having all our documents photocopied and ready for pick up. Another easily executed Korean Bureaucracy success. 3. Amazing … More Beautiful Korea. Wonderful Immigration.
