MOST RECENT

Carrying on with my phase of East Asian literature, I recently read the South Korean/Japanese saga Pachinko by Min Jin Lee.
It’s the story of multiple generations of a South Korean family living in Japan. Sunja moves from South Korea when she is a young woman, unexpectedly pregnant by a married yakuza, and very much clouded in shame. A Christian minister stays at her parent’s guesthouse, and offers to marry her and move to Japan with him, where he is to preach his faith.
This is the start of a new life for Sunja, and a new life for her future child. It won’t be an easy ride for a South Korean family in Japan in the midst and aftermath of WW1. Pachinko gives voice to the immigrant outsiders, and as the Guardian puts it, ‘is a rich tribute to a people that history seems intent on erasing’. If you read and enjoyed the wonderful ‘Do Not Say We Have Nothing’, I think you’d like this too. It’s the sort of book in which you learn about modern history through the emotive family saga.
Highly recommended (and thanks to all you bookstagrammers who recommended it to me!) #Pachinko #MinJinLee

Day 1: you were at my door, the best evening of my life. You passed some quick remarks, and we, innocently flirted.
.
Day 3: you dropped a "Hi" on my inbox. I danced around my house all alone. .
Day 10: The texting is non stop. You always seem to sense what I'm feeling, but you suck at punctuation.
.
Day 15: 2AM. The lingering question kept me up. What is this feeling? I'm comfortable with your wrong punctuations now. .
Day 20: I realize I'm in love. You tell me I'm beautiful, and I believe it. I tell you that I thought you carried the sun in your chest pocket. You laughed. .
Day 21: you ask me whether I've ever been in love. I say yes, you don't ask further. .
Day 25: we exchange songs, and listened to each other's feelings, all night. Is your favorite genre still "female covers of male songs"?
.
Day 35: you read to me over the phone. Your voice warmer than my morning coffee. I almost tell you that I love you. .
Day 45: you don't text anymore. I spent my night wondering what went wrong.
.
Day 55: still no word from you, I spent my night reading our conversations and listening to your songs. .
Day 60: I wished you were at my door. .
Day 63: I slept at a reasonable hour. .
Day 68: I decided not to think about you anymore. .
Day 90: I see you again, in a similar party, where we met 3 months ago. My head is bursting with questions. Your smile and your brown eyes are still contagious, but I couldn't seem to look at them. .
90 . it took me 90 days to make something a habit and let go of it.

I love journals! It’s been a lovely morning. I chatted with my lil bro and reminisced over my older journals as I sipped my coffee.
..
Every now and then, I like to take these off the shelf and skim through them because it reminds that I’ve always loved writing. Back then, I just didn’t know it yet. It’s fun to see how far I’ve come and makes me excited for the future.
..
Tell me, what is something you love?

Immigration memories.

Stop looking. We know what you're looking for. A nice, indoor spot to escape the heat, yet find adventure. There's adventures in books! Books, bibliophiles, and a bar. What more do you need? 📚❤🍺💙🍷💛🤓

Har skrevet om den lille død, tech og gymnasieminder i den uges klumme hos @altfordamerne stolt og taknemmelig for den fine plads #takfortaletid #readwriterepeat #takeupspace 👊🏼

I used to hate mornings, but when you have coffee, a good book, yummy things to eat and the sun shining through the window, how can it not be good? ☕️🥐🍇 Are you a morning or a night person?
..
So, I started two other books before landing on The Nightingale. I have a feeling this is going to tear me apart; I haven’t read a WWII novel in awhile.
..
Have you read it? What did you think?

My morning thoughts: 🍃
..
Maybe if you listen hard enough, you can hear the birds singing songs of summer. Or feel the splotches of sun demanding their presence among the shade. If your lips part a little, maybe you can taste the crisp air that is full of bloomed flowers and green leaves as it brushes past. If you inhale deeply, you can smell the grass that has been freshly cut and watered. If your eyes are open, truly open, then you can see all the wonders set before you. When life seems a little dark and uneasy, there is always light trying to pull you back in.

Hey, you know what, you shouldn't be talking of multiverses and our parallels over there, telling me that that there are a million possibilities in each one of them.

It makes me dream about the things I've given up on long ago. You shouldn't tell me that in some other world I would've taken up that choice I didn't took in this one. And about things that sit in the shelf of 'I-wish-I-had's. Somewhere some counterpart of me would have talked at least once to my childhood best friend before he died. Somewhere there would be neat endings; not the vague ones that take me giving up a lot of hope to swallow.

By saying things like this, you make it seem obvious. That you and I, at present, could be watching over the sunset of some other gallaxy or looking upon the constellations of some other universe, together.
