I am getting so excited about spring and all the wonderful warm weather activities to come–picnics, potlucks, flea markets, rooftop hangouts, long walks, mini dresses, and sandals.
Alexander, the dashing young cook behind Breakfast Bachelor, invited me for an evening of pizza-making in his lovely kitchen. It was so much fun chatting about our love of food and the city, I hardly realized the clock was ticking.
“Some people like to paint pictures, or do gardening, or build a boat… Other people get a tremendous pleasure out of the kitchen, because cooking is just as creative and imaginative an activity as drawing, or wood carving, or music.” – Julia Child
봄이 오면 / 하얗게 핀 꽃 들녁으로 / 당신과 나 단 둘이 / 봄 맞으러 가야지
A few months ago, I managed to finish printing and binding my little photo zine, right before I left Yunnan. These zines have traveled with me through Shanghai, Virginia, and now New York. I find such joy in preparing small packages and sending off my zines to friends and familiar strangers all around the world. It’s so strange to see that I only have just a handful of copies left. I wonder where they’ll travel to next.
On a related note, I’m hoping to write a short tutorial for those of you hoping to delve into independently publishing digital zines. I know how confusing the process can be at first, but it’s just wonderful to see memories and ideas become tangible.
*Last photo of my zine is by Lisa, who has a keen eye for capturing details
