OK, I lied in my previous post. I haven’t posted for awhile, but I am still trying to get back into it. Why has this suddenly become so difficult since settling into a life here?

I am more unsettled because I am settled.

Regardless, I am hoping this will spur me into creativity, at least of the writing variety.

Aside from the above, my only creative output for the last six months has been making my own booze, including Korean dong dong ju, a milky white rice liquor. I got the recipe online from a source unknown. He refers to it as booze and so do I so I feel a deep sense of han with him/her. My kibun is really good.
