Origami Season

Today is rainy and a good day to work on the traditional Holiday Card...origami animals...For the last 18 years I have been doing a folded origami animal and sending it out for the holidays. This year is going to be really beautiful and delicate. After a year of knitting every day it is always hard to get into origami. But Origami is a great way to just be into yourself and a very quiet pass time to ponder the things in life. So many levels that everyone should try doing it. Many sites on the web...just google Origami Diagrams.

The Calligrapher's Daughter

I am reading a novel written by my cousin Eugenia Kim, Washington DC. Wonderful book and worth a read...just wonderful.

Eugenia Kim's
The Calligrapher's Daughter follows the trials of a headstrong girl in turn-of-the-century Korea. Love and inter-generational strife operate against the backdrop of the impending Japanese occupation and the shadow of the dying monarchy. The Washington Post writes, "Eugenia Kim's sensitive first novel, which depicts 30 years of Korea's modern history in light of its ancient past, is an illuminating prequel to present-day events. . . . A satisfying excursion into empathetically rendered lives."
