One phase of my life is ending, a new one is beginning.

Know what that means? New friends. Wonder who I’ll meet and what awkward ways we will find to insinuate ourselves into each other’s lives. I hope the slide-over-by-means-of-cane method is acceptable. See how she is pleasantly affronted but doesn’t run away.

I felt after I finished Slaughterhouse-Five that I didn’t have to write at all anymore if I didn’t want to. It was the end of some sort of career. I don’t know why, exactly. I suppose that flowers, when they’re through blooming, have some sort of awareness of some purpose having been served. Flowers didn’t ask to be flowers and I didn’t ask to be me. At the end of Slaughterhouse-Five…I had a shutting-off feeling…that I had done what I was supposed to do and everything was OK.

Vonnegut after finishing Slaughterhouse-Five.

This comes to me as I’m finishing the first full text draft of my first real novel. And it comes to me that what I’d really like to write is an epic space opera. All the rest just feel like practicing :E

19 November 1957

Dear Monsieur Germain,

I let the commotion around me these days subside a bit before speaking to you from the bottom of my heart. I have just been given far too great an honour, one I neither sought nor solicited.

But when I heard the news, my first thought, after my mother, was of you. Without you, without the affectionate hand you extended to the small poor child that I was, without your teaching and example, none of all this would have happened.

I don’t make too much of this sort of honour. But at least it gives me the opportunity to tell you what you have been and still are for me, and to assure you that your efforts, your work, and the generous heart you put into it still live in one of your little schoolboys who, despite the years, has never stopped being your grateful pupil. I embrace you with all my heart.

Albert Camus

From his autobiographical novel “The First Man”, translated from French, to his teacher who saw the potential in Camus and nursed it into the beginning of a career which would see the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957. The manuscript for “The First Man” was salvaged from the wreckage of the car accident which killed Camus at the age of 34.

When I’m low I just need to remember to be grateful for all the people in my life who have loved and supported me in times when I didn’t feel like I deserved it. Sometimes it’s hard to remember, but when I do it’s hard to feel as alone as I had imagined I was. I have the privilege to sit here quietly, and with my chin lowered, embrace them with all my heart, even if they are gone forever or far away. And in their light, keep going. We can only do our best. Who knows what tomorrow brings. Always gratefulness above all things.

Joss Whedon apologizes for inconveniencing Seoul-ites for a few days while Avengers 2 films in Seoul.

How cool is it going to be that some of Avengers 2 takes place in Seoul?? I can’t get my head around it. What a great way to show that South Korea is thriving (and isn’t the North). I hope Tony Stark has everybody partake in shwarma doenjeng chigae.

Jupiter Ascending is coming out this summer — the new Wachowski effort. That alone is enough to get me in the theater. The fact that the storyline resembles a Matrix-y/Cloud Altas-y Sailor Moon gets me there the first weekend. Nobody takes advantage of a beautiful sci-fi action set piece like the Wachowskis. Also, Doona Bae is back in a supporting role.

If Sean Bean dies in this one I’m going to cry laughing, however.

I haven’t even heard of it before and yet I know this is something I have to watch already. Hopefully it wont take too long getting into the Korean cinemas!

It actually comes out in Korea a day before it comes out in the US, haha. I wonder if it gets a big wide release. I bet it does.
