Talked endlessly at softly lit coffee shops,
sewed beads on a painting in progress ("Kitsch Fish"),
Drank red red wine,
chilled pink omija tea,
and crisp cold beer.
Took geeky doll photos at fancy restaurants,
and shaky blurry ones with best friend Tanya who flew in from Beijing.
Went to Seonyoo Park on a cloudy day,
window-shopped in Myeongdong.
Enjoyed the lanterns for Buddha's Birthday at Jogyesa,
Met a whole lot of interesting new people and potential friends.
It was a good month.
