Happy Lunar New Year

While I teach, I learn

 

January 2019 was a great start to another meaningful and creative year, full of plans and to-do lists. I feel lucky to enjoy one day a week with younger people sharing bojagi. They amaze me and motivating me since I started meeting them in 2012. I get positive energy from them and learn more than I teach. 

Lunar New Year comes early this year and it is Feb. 5th. Thinking of another bowl of rice cake soup makes me happy, even though I will get another year older.
On Sunday, Feb. 10th, I will celebrate Lunar New Year at the Oakland Museum making Saekdong Bok jumeoni with museum visitors. Please come and enjoy the festivities and make your own Bok jumeoni!

Basic Bojagi Class during March and April is full now. I will plan more bojagi classes at my home studio in May and June. These will be on Saturday mornings. Stay tuned for a future announcement.

Reading recommendation: I've been asked for recommendations for people who want to know more about Korea and its culture. Here's an updated book by Daniel Tudor, a Seoul-based author and journalist. I have an older edition and curious about what the updates included.

Time to wrap up...


...this year and welcome another one! I had a very busy but fulfilling year. I had many wonderful chances to expand my horizon and opportunities to step out of my comfort zone. These encouraged me to try new things and led me to grow a little more. I appreciate your love and support. In 2019, I hope you all have a creative and joyous year!
