Daily Life

Hello from New York!


One more big surprise for 2012: I’m officially a NYC resident! Barely recovered from my wisdom surgery, I finished packing up my things and moved up into my new place. I’ll definitely show you around my apartment, once I finish decorating!

Fun socks for speedy recovery!

And of course, coloring Johanna’s lovable copains. I need that outfit, especially the teal oxfords!

This winter, Johanna sent me a lovely snail mail package with her wonderful coloring zine, as well as vintage photographs and postcards from France. Her work is wonderful, and her mails always brighten up my day.

Good friends hanging out in our new studio.

How funny you are today New York
like Ginger Rogers in Swingtime
and St. Bridget’s steeple leaning a little to the left

here I have just jumped out of a bed full of V-days
(I got tired of D-days) and blue you there still
accepts me foolish and free
all I want is a room up there
and you in it
and even the traffic halt so thick is a way
for people to rub up against each other
and when their surgical appliances lock
they stay together
for the rest of the day (what a day)
I go by to check a slide and I say
that painting’s not so blue

oh god it’s wonderful
to get out of bed
and drink too much coffee
and smoke too many cigarettes
and love you so much

– Steps by Frank O’Hara


P.S. Thank you for the kind words about my mini photo zine: Jenny + Jannese + Kelly

    Oh, Sewon, that’s awesome that you’re living in NYC now (ahem, meetup? haha.) I can’t wait to see how you’ve decorated your new place and I like how you’ve done up Johanna’s colouring book. Hope that you have a lovely week/finish recovering from surgery! xx

    yay for you, Sewon! <3 oh New York, New York. it really is my dream city. at one point last year, I wanted to go to NY so badly that i actually planned my flights and trip out hahaha. unfortunately, I had to start college early so that left me little time to travel. 🙁 I definitely will fly out there next year or so! your photographs and blog posts are always so wonderful. they make me feel so happy and light and summery hehe. i love that Frank O'Hara poem, especially the last stanza. what loveliness. xxx

    Oh, I was there two months ago. Ah, New York. Such a wonderful place. The museums there are wonderful. And the food. Oh my gosh. ;A;

    I would move there if rent wasn’t so expensive. OTL
