a small valley stream in Chisan valley.
I am on summer vacation from July 20th to August 24th. I already spent my ten days of my holidays on refreshing my mind- Zen training in my Buddhism temple and reading a Japanese novel, Genjimonogatari,(源氏物語) written in Korean.
Whenever I am on vacation, I can have much my own free time to enjoy my hobby and what I want to do. It is my strongest strength of my life style. A long vacation make me reflect my last semester, refresh my wasted mind and body with teaching pupils and processing official papers in my school. Holidays make me set free to these works temporarily. but sometimes, the upper education office drop administrational orders to lower schools on emergency. I must go to school to process these orders related to me. except for this, No one and Nothing hinder my infinite freedom of my holidays.

The highest good is like water.
Water gives life to the ten thousand things and does not strive.
It flows in places men reject and so is like the Tao.

In dwelling , be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In business, be competent.
In action, watch the timing.

No fight: No blame.

quoted from Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching capter 8.
translated by Gia-Fu and Jane English.
