Throughout my time in Korea I have visited a local park. This quiet spot, a 20 minute walk from my apartment, has been a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
I found an ordinary wooden deck with unremarkable views of grey buildings and a nearby hospital.
Ordinary as it may appear, I asked to have my picture taken at this exact location over a period of one year. And this is the result.
The changes that this ordinary little deck gets to witness are anything but ordinary. It is covered in snow as you read this, but in the springtime it has a canopy of cherry blossoms to look forward to. In the warmer months it is protected by imposing, lush, leafy trees, and in the fall it has a carpet of red, orange and yellow maple leaves at its feet.
As I reflect on these final 6 months in Korea, I am thankful to the friends who were with me for a season. And I am truly grateful to those who stayed with me for a reason. Seasons come and go, such is life. I have 2 left, so hit me up and let's do kimchi jjigae sometime! 🌸🌿🍂❄ - S
