The important things are not the writing and the speaking, but the love I share with the people who surround me and the events that have shaped my life.


In my first visit to Korea, back in 1964, we lived on a farm with no
electricity and no running water, and this city kid fell in love with traditional Korea.

Another photo of the farm.

Stayed in a remote, ancient Buddhist temple in the mountains of Korea.

We joined the descendants of the queen for the annual Confucian ceremony at her tomb site. Her tomb in on the hill in the background.
