From Pusan Perimeter to Seoul and Return

 Newly Weds posing with cherry blossoms in Seoul April 2004: they were lined up to have the pictures taken


A little historical reminder in that headline there. As a ten-year old I read everything I could about the Korean War, the Forgotten War as some call it.

A taxi-driver in Busan—name has been changed from Pusan to Busan—taking me to the United Nations Cemetery thought I might be old enough to have been a participant and was appropriately grateful. When I told him I was too young he thanked my older brothers, uncles and father. He too was a child at the time.

Busan to Seoul and back.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
