the jaunt

SOUTH KOREA | Tuesday, 25 November 2008 | Views [467]

my footsteps are heavy on the newly lain sidewalk.  a patchwork of maroon and faded banana coloured bricks.  the air is crisp.  a breeze mingles the chill from the not-too distant mountains of seorak with the not-too distant salt spray from the sea of japan.  the scent of sokcho.  a tired ginko leaf scurries underfoot to lean itself against the curb.  it rests there indefinitely, exhausted.  naked trees hold their arms aloft overhead.  a deafeatist pose of quite indignation toward the winter to come.  a surrender of sorts.  i plod on through the remnants of a korean autumn.  give a nod to the mountains poking their heads up beyond the cluttered skyline of apartment buildings and telephone wires. a nod of mutual understanding between friends.  see you around.  i'll visit soon.  the rhythm of my footsteps reaches its crescendo and i step through the welcoming doors of work.
