My eleven-year-old dog (now fourteen) was scared of everything.  He used to bark at everyone visiting the house who he didn’t know.  When I was living with him and my folks, I didn’t know how to train dogs.  I tried to stop him from barking but it never worked.

When my husband went over to my folk’s house for the first time, my dog was barking at his every movement.  I put my dog between my husband and me.  He was shivering so hard but about a half hour later, he stopped shivering and finally lay down and relaxed.

After that day, he never barked at my husband and my brother in law.

During training and when he was still scared of being close to my husband, I took a picture of the two.  My husband made a funny yet evil face.  My dog looked like he was pretending didn’t know about the evil behind him.
Around this time, Chungae stream (청계천) had colorful decorations.  I like these kinds of touches in cities.  If we don’t have them, cities would be so boring.

I’m planning to visit Korea later this year.  I can’t wait to see my dog.

Finally, The Japanese visa process went through.  To obtain the visa, we went to Korea again. It was a very cold morning.  Before we dealt with some business, we had a small breakfast at a coffee shop.  I drank a glass of hot green tea because I could keep the cup!  I loved this cup.  The size was perfect for me and I like glass cups. Unfortunately, I broke it.  It was just a cup but I was very sad.

The coffee shop was next to Chungea Stream (Chumgeachun 청계천).  It’s a long stream you can walk along.  The embassy is close to the stream.  After we were done dealing with the visa, we walked next to the stream to the hotel.

During the walk, we saw a small ice mountain with its peak made up of water jars.  I think it was a fountain made with used water jars.  It was too cold for the water and made this awesome sculpture.

Peaceful moment in a temple in Korea.

Peaceful moment in a temple in Korea.
We are living in a very noisy life.  So many things we have make sounds, either white noises or loud sounds. Your smart phone rings too many different notices, your refrigerator growls all day long, your neighbor plays loud music, and sometimes jets or helicopters fly above you with great sound.
As with many people, sounds around me don’t bother me most of time.  I realize how I appreciate the simple quiet moments only when I’m in a situation like that.  Every time I visit a temple, quiet ones, all the sound around the temple feels so peaceful.  A bell rings in the wind and birds sing in the trees.
I hope you enjoy the peaceful moment with my drawing even if it’s short.
