Between him, the mirror, and the girl with the donkey (missing back post story) I’ve got more camp-kitsch than I have wall space. It’s a decorator’s nightmare.

Today was an 11.00 class followed by three office hours. I tried to work, but when it’s finally nice and warm out, that is hard. I work a dress shirt and a light jacket today. No hat. No scarf (had one on Monday). No gloves. No sweater. It’s warm outside, yet somehow every building including my house has locked in the winter chills still. It’s like the Earth hasn’t caught up to the air.

This Old Hanok

When we had the bathroom done, we wanted to design our own window for the part of the wall which straddles the storage space along the side of the house. This way we could have clean airflow through
